Ipanema Beach

Ipanema
  • Natural Attraction
  • 3-5 hours
  • Summer

If Copacabana is the most famous, Ipanema is the sexiest. Immortalised by the Girl of Ipanema song, this stretch of sand is varied and diverse, a reflection of Rio's many faces. Different tribes inhabit Ipanema, each with a distinct territory demarcated by the numbered lifeguard towers. Posto 10 is the sport lovers area where people play volleyball, football and the locally invented futivoley - a mix of the two. Posto 8 is dominated by the favela kids. Leblon at the opposite end from Copa is the family area. Posto 9, in front of Farme de Amoedo street is where the LGBTQ crowd meet. Just follow the rainbow flag.
