Just to people watch and drink yummy caipirinhas. Water sucks! Worried too much about my personal things on the beach. People don't leave you alone. Other beaches in the area are more relaxing.

A famous Brazilian beach, Copacabana is packed during the day with sunworshippers and 'fute volle' players (foot volleyball), who move to it's beachside restaurants as the sun sets.

Copacabana is a neighborhood in Rio filled with lots of hotels and resorts. The area itself kind of feels outdated and worn, almost as if it peaked in the 1950s an declined. Regardless, it's worth a visit and is still a popular area in Rio, especially for its beach.

Copacabana is a neighborhood along the beach and between the lagoon. It's a bit less expensive than the Ipanema neighborhood around the corner. The beach is nice, but the water is a bit yucky from industrial pollution. The locals don't understand why anyone swims here.

The sand sculptures are an unmissable attraction along the Copacabana beach. artists use all their talent to build sand castles and sand reproductions of tourist spots in the city.
Hotels, restaurants, bars, night clubs and residential buildings dot the promenade.
Copacabana Beach plays host to millions of revellers during the annual New Year's Eve celebrations and, in most years, has been the official venue of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. It's also stage to Nacional and international concerts.
The Copacabana promenade is a pavement landscape in large scale (4 kilometres long). It was completed in 1970 and has used a black and white Portuguese pavement design since its origin in the 1930s: a geometric wave.
