Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro
(4.1/5 based on 15,000+ reviews on the web)
Lively Copacabana Beach features warm waters and a wide stretch of white sand, with numerous hotels, restaurants, bars, and night clubs dotting its promenade. You can swim, play sports, relax on the sand, enjoy freshly-caught fish delicacies, and soak up the atmosphere of one of Brazil’s most popular tourist destinations. The beach is policed and lit all through the night, so it’s always abuzz with hundreds of visitors, musicians, and food vendors. Take a leisurely sunset walk on the beach’s iconic walkway, and stay late to see locals singing, dancing, and playing footvolley right on the water’s edge. Remember to always swim where the locals do, and leave all your valuables at the hotel. By using our Rio de Janeiro trip builder, you can arrange your visit to Copacabana Beach and other attractions in Rio de Janeiro.

  • Worth the walk on the Boardwalk. Nice beach but the sea kind of dangerous. Stalls as all beach of Brazil what annoys me a little.

  • Very beautiful beach, promenade great for hiking, but is very busy during the holidays. In the water we have to be careful, because it is background so we went in.
