Avenida Atlantica, Rio de Janeiro

4.5
#2 of 45 in Historic Sites in Rio de Janeiro
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Stroll along the Copacabana Beach on the iconic Avenida Atlantica, passing through an area where local fishermen sell their fresh catch of the day. This waterfront avenue is 4 km (2.5 mi) long and spans the entire length of the Copacabana and Leme neighborhoods. You can take a long walk along the avenue’s famous black and white wave-patterned Portuguese pavement promenade, or rent a bicycle and ride along the designated bike lanes. The avenue is lined with residential buildings, fine restaurants, shops, and hotels. The beach is often used for free concerts and sporting events, which you can watch right from the promenade. Time your visit for the evening hours, when arts and crafts are sold all along the avenue.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
