Nice beach. Obviously famous and I can’t get the song out of my head now, luckily it’s a great song. We stayed at Ipanema which in my opinion is a much nicer beach. But this is still lovely.

For us, the "best" winter vacation is late December through New Years on Copacabana Beach. As it is "their" late spring entering summer the weather is always very pleasant. Do not let anyone tell you that it is "not safe" - Rio patrols their "tourist...More

We stayed at Mirador at Copacabana 2 nights. The weather wasn’t great so we didn’t go out on the beach, other than a walk on the sidewalk on beach side. We enjoyed watching the action, especially no hands volleyball. Also, amazing sandcastles etc on display,...More

Again a very very clean beach. Cold water with big waves but nice to look at and smell. Not disappointed by the beach.

The boardwalk was great - the beach lovely although the ocean was quite rough so beware if you're travelling with children. Perfect for surfing, though!

Lots of effort must have gone into the clean up and maintenance. Good, clean and safe beach (less so as a swimming beach due to tide/waves). We saw guys cleaning it all the time. People selling stuff were not pushy and in general a great...More

This is a nice stretch of sand, but there are lots of other places you can see beaches like this. The sea is not great...there were plenty if waves and not what you would call a welcoming sea to swim in. The local beach restaurants...More

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
