    Walking along the boardwalk of Copacabana as far as Ipanema on Easter Sunday.
    The beach was alive with families having fun and there were many organized games being played.
    Half of the main road was closed to traffic and people were roller skating and cycling and it was a great place to people watch.
    Beach cafés and restaurants were every 100 yards or so and security was visible everywhere.
    It is such an alive place and the most friendly people I have ever been around.
    The views are breathtaking from the ground or from a building or from the mountains around. Pure Paradise.

    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 The area itself kind of feels outdated and worn, almost as if it peaked in the 1950s an declined.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.

    The apartment is located 1/2 block from the World famous Copacabana Palace Hotel - where you can enjoy great dinning in the hotel or poolside. Also, 1/2 block from the apartment are many great sidewalk cafes and nearby restaurants.

    I lived in this district for almost a decade. Always busy, great beach, bars and food. Plenty of things to do and see or just relax!

    Great place. Difficult to see sad people. One of the most-visit places in Rio de Janeiro, don't forget going to the Militar Fort :)

    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.

    Copacabana is a great neighborhood to have fun. It has not only one of the most famous beaches around the world, but also the greatest New Years Eve show in Brazil.

    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.

    Tucked between the hills and the beach, Copacabana has long enjoyed a worldwide reputation as glamour central, and as such, the place to be in Rio.

    Copacabana Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world. With it's wide white sands, volleyball nets, and Brazilieras swaying with the samba rhythms in their micro bikinis.

    The signature wide sidewalks, with the black and white tiles swirling in patterns that help mesmerize you to the charm that is Brazil and Rio De Janeiro, make strolling along them easy. There are also plenty of reasonable restaurants that line the beach, along with great Hotel brands for you to stay in.

    Copa...here you'll find souvenir stands along the strand on evenings/nights, in the daytime you can sip a coconut or few (ask for the colds ones) along the beach. The Marriot hotel is nice here. "Grill at the Inn" is a suggested locals restaurant for Brazilian bbq by weight. Rent a bike and ride to the next beach or jog/walk.

    This is one of the more touristy beaches in Rio, but still my favorite. The water is unbelievably nice (save for a surprisingly strong undertow), the sand is beautiful, and the scene is active without being overcrowded. At night its gorgeous and active as well.

Description

The vibe at Copacabana beach has little to do with the cheesy strains of the Barry Manilow song. Instead, you'll find jutting mountains, drum circles, beachfront restaurants serving caipirinhas and snacks, and the distinctive mosaic sidewalks. Cariocas, Rio natives, sun themselves and chat in tiny swimsuits, and the surf is always strong.
