Praia de Ipanema

Praia de Ipanema Review

As you stroll this world-famous beach you'll encounter a cross section of the city's residents, each favoring a particular stretch. Families predominate in the area by near Posto (Post) 10, for instance, and the gay community clusters near Posto 8. Throughout the day you'll see groups playing beach volleyball and soccer, and if you're lucky you might even come across the Brazilian Olympic volleyball team practicing here. At kiosks all along the boardwalk, you can sample all sorts of food and drink, from the typical coconut water to fried shrimp and turnovers. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets. Best for: walking; sunset.
