The beach here is a lot less busy than the middle section of Copacabana and the strip heading towards Ipanema beach. You can get 2 deck chairs and an... More

Leme beach is a special piece of Copacabana beach. I found it particularly better than that one because it's not crowded with tourists. Prices of beverages and snacks are also lower. If you are traveling with your kids you should definitely enjoy it.
