A little bit quieter that Copacabana though it’s technically the same beach. Always felt safe, lots of helpful taxis and easy to get around. Beach is beautiful but the water is not really good for small children or weak swimmers with very powerful waves and undertow.

Having been to Rio 4 times, 3 in the last 18 months, I can say that Leme is safe to walk around, and honestly all of Copacobana / Ipanema is fine is you are aware, cautious and not lost in a fantasy.

We walk around the whole area, even at night time we feel fine.

The beach is lovely and quiet, more locals but some tourists from the nearby hotels.

Easy to get Ubers from the area and can even walk to the Mall on the other side of the tunnel 20 mins away.

Just returned a few days ago, all is fine there.

Frequented by more locals than tourists. Two main buses go there. On reaching the last stop, you will come to a military fort. Be prepared for an 800m cobbled stone path that leads to stunning views! (Third highest view point after Cristo Redentor and Sugarloaf)

We stayed here for 10 days as a family of 4 with 2x <10 year olds. The area was safe, even at night, well lit, a reasonable number of decent restaurants (though you can also grab an uber for cheap, so we ate elsewhere >50% of the time). The beach is quieter than the main Copacabana and Ipanema strips, with fewer hawkers and far less traffic (due to the road being a dead end). Highly recommended for young families.

By sharing yoA nice spot to have a pineapple juice or a coconut drink – right from the coconut!!
I saw people that jumped into the water from the wall – looked really fun!!
Some see turtles in the water
So you can either enjoy it for the jumping into the water, or as a walk along the wall with spectacular views!!

Glorious beach on the northern end of Copacabana Beach. One of the safest places in Rio (so we were told). Easy to access and good places to eat nearby and a nice local feel. Loved it.

We walked all the way down Copacabana beach and reached Leme. The views of the beach, mountain, and city is astonishingly beautiful. Well worth the walk.
