Beach adjacent to some of the most expensive real estate in Rio. Well maintained. Was not very crowded the day we were there but there were several surfers catching the early spring season waves. Immediately to the East is the more famous Ipanema Beach. Just to the West beyond LeBlon's Lookout, there is the juxtaposition of luxury and poverty with the Sheraton on the beachfront and a large favela on the hillside.

While most tourists stay in hotels in and therefore go to Copacabana / Leme beach, locals prefer the beach of Ipanema / Leblon. In reality one 3.5km stretch of beach, with the canal of Jardim de Allah dividing Ipanema from Leblon. Arpoador is surfer oriented and has the best sunset view. Beach references are the Postos, lifeguard stations at each km. Posto 9 in Ipanema and Leblon’s 11 and 12 are most popular, with Ipanema more ‘seen and be seen’, and between Postos 8 and 9 is mostly gay popular. Leblon is more laid back and families. All four Ipanema and Leblon metro stations are 2 blocks walking distance from the beach. Advice from a 9-year resident.

It´s a nice beach in Rio de Janeiro. The beach is very beautiful and clean, not very crowded. I enjoyed a lot this place.

Personally a much better bet than Copacabana - more intimate.
Hire a bike in Leblon, and cycle all way along to end of Copacabana and back - good work out. Just make sure you dont run anyone over - stepping out into the cycle path from the beach.

Just popped along from Ipanema for a run in the morning. It's nice and quiet, with fewer of the beautiful people, and a great mountain view behind.

In Rio, the beaches (or rather the people that go to them) mirror the neighborhoods behind them.

In Leblon, the beach scene is a bit older, laid-back and family oriented. The beaches in Rio have lifeguard towers with bathrooms called ‘postos’. In Leblon, the beaches have higher ‘posto’ numbers.

I always go to Posto 11 in front of rua Joao Lira and rent ‘barracas’ (umbrellas) and ‘cadeiras’ (chairs) from Joyce. She's great!

The best part of Ipanema is the far most part of the beach, towards Leblon, the absolutely most exclusive area of Rio.
This pristine beach is calm and quiet, and I can only be happy to have found it, and could get away from the shouting, lousy, loud vendors and over - aged rich tourists in tasteless outfits by Ipanema...love it!

If you think Ipanema is too crazy, keep on walking until you get to Leblon beach. Quieter, more families, but the same great surf and beach. Recommended especially for weekends.
