It was my favorite beach in Rio. Leblon is frequented more by locals, the sun beds, umbrellas and drinks are a little bit more expensive in Leblon, so it was less crowded than Copacabana and Ipanema. You should go there in the morning

Best spot to get your feet in the water at sunset; Enjoy more the upscale crowd on the beach and more space to get your umbrella

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...More
