You can have a great view of Copacabana Beach from the Copacabana Fort. It is near posto #6 of Copacabana beach. The admission is only R $6 and you and view the different cannons and fort structure in there. There are 2 very nice restaurants (Colombo de Forte & Loja Vitacura ) for breakfast,lunch with a great scenic view.

The fort opens at 10 am - 8pm.

I would suggest do the Fort & grab breakfast / lunch and then hit the beach have make a half day trip of it.

If you are in Rio, for business or pleasure, do not miss this attraction. It is inexpensive ( US$ 2 1/2) and has a fantastic view. You can also have a drink, breakfast or a quick meal enjoying the scenery .
And it is there, very close to everything, at a walking distance from the hotels

This historic fort is ideally located at the south end of Copacabana beach, in Arpoadar, on a promontory jutting into the bay. There is a small entry fee to tour the fort, where inside the history is outlined (but only in Portuguese) and some rooms on display, but the main reason to visit are for the unique views from this location. There is a nice cafe and shop on the grounds, and from the street and from on top of the armaments, you get great views of the beach - some of the best photo opportunities out to Sugarloaf. Worth a quick visit.

This fort represents an important Brazilian historical place, but for me it is worth because of the amazing view to the sea and to the Copacabana beach. It is one of the places to go in Rio.
