Effectively the east end of the Copacabana beach and is slightly quieter than Copa. Enjoyed a few days here sat in deckchair (10 reals) drinking a beer (5 reals)

Much quieter than other parts of the beach, seems popular with locals and families.
Lots of sports areas.

Leme beach is much better then Copacabana. Clean, quite and safe. The beach is used by locals, probably from nearby pacified favela.
Also the prices for the services and food/drinks tend to be lower.
Have a great day here.

This is one of the ends of the Copacabana Beach. It is very well know in the city as a calm part of Copacabana. One of the biggest attraction is the end of the beach where on the skirt of a stone hill a small walkway serve as a place for fishing and is also one of the best views of the whole Copacabana beach. It can be part of a nice walk in the morning or afternoon.

Leme beach is in front of the Leme neighborhood, not surprisingly. A lovely quiet neighborhood which has become far more safe and desirable (and expensive too unfortunately) since the favela pacification program. Here, the Avenida Atlantica is basically a dead end, traffic turns off onto Princesa Isabel which marks the beginning of Leme, leaving a much quieter environment for beach strolling along the sidewalk. There is a decent sidewalk style restaurant across the street from the beach. By walking out to the area at the base of the big rock which marks the end of Copacabana Beach, there is a great view and if the haze is not so thick a great spot for taking pictures. While the ocean waters may be somewhat cleaner here, I don't go in the water anywhere along Copacabana as it is simply too polluted. Also, I recommend against using the free beach showers. A recent test of the water from those showers showed a high fecal coliform bacteria content.
