Avenida Atlantica, Rio de Janeiro

(4.5/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is perhaps most famous Avenue which is the famous bordering Copacabana beach. It is wide for cars, has bike path so that people can not only cycling, but also go jogging (lot do that) and lets go by the traditional catwalk of Copacabana which is really wide so not complicated that has many people. And hostels there and the beach on the side is a cool re walk that is worthwhile.

  • I stay at a hotel at the avenida atlantica, beautiful restaurants, but at night is not very advisable unfortunately.
