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.
