Leblon Beach, Rio de Janeiro

4.5
Enjoy the luxurious silent side of the city at Leblon Beach, tucked away in its most affluent neighborhood. Set between the foot of a scenic mountain and the lagoon, the beach offers an air of exclusivity tempering the nearby trendiness of Ipanema, providing a relaxing spot in a sophisticated setting. Popular with families, the area has a sufficient number of bars, restaurants, high-class hotels and nightclubs, designer boutiques, and celebrity-filled sidewalks for a variety of activities around this least-known of Rio's central beaches.

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.
