Lively Copacabana Beach features warm waters and a wide stretch of white sand, with numerous hotels, restaurants, bars, and night clubs dotting its promenade. You can swim, play sports, relax on the sand, enjoy freshly-caught fish delicacies, and soak up the atmosphere of one of Brazil’s most popular tourist destinations. The beach is policed and lit all through the night, so it’s always abuzz with hundreds of visitors, musicians, and food vendors. Take a leisurely sunset walk on the beach’s iconic walkway, and stay late to see locals singing, dancing, and playing footvolley right on the water’s edge. Remember to always swim where the locals do, and leave all your valuables at the hotel.

  • Worth the hype! Post 6 is more quiet and Post 1 is full of all kinds of activity.
  • Copacabana beach is about 4.5 kilometers long, and the leisure life of Rio people revolves around the famous beach in the world. It can be said that this is the essence of Brazil's hodgepodge culture. There are many kiosks, hotels and cafes selling snacks and drinks along the street. It is said that copacobana beach at night is relatively poor in security, so I dare not visit
