Rio de Janeiro Sights

Praia do Leme

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 09/30/2013

Fodor's Review

Leme Beach is a natural extension of Copacabana Beach to the northeast, toward Pão de Açúcar. A rock formation juts into the water here, forming a quiet cove that's less crowded than the rest of the beach. Along a sidewalk, at the side of the mountain overlooking Leme, anglers stand elbow to elbow with their lines dangling into the sea. Many locals swim here, but be wary of the strong undertow, and never head into the water when the red flag is displayed on the beach.

Amenities: food and drink; toilets; showers; lifeguards. Best for: walking; sunset.
