Great views, Free, Family-friendly
Ipanema Beach, the stretch of white sand on Rio's coast between Arpoador and Leblon beaches, is considered the jewel in the city's crown. The area surrounding it is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the city and appropriately filled with upscale boutiques and restaurants. The beach itself is usually full of beautiful people, parading around in Brazil's revealing designer swimwear, sipping from a coconut shell or a fresh fruit caipirinha (both available from beachside kiosks). Workout stations, volleyball courts, and soccer fields dot the landscape, each packed with Cariocas working on their physiques.
