Brazil is a country with the most beautiful beaches in the world. Residents of Rio love their beaches where they relax and enjoy numerous activities such as sports, music, dancing. Certainly the most famous beach in Rio de Janeiro is the famous Copacabana beach, which occupies 4 km of coastline, and offers an incredible view on the mountain Sugarloaf Mountain and the magnificent statue of Christ the Savior.
Copacabana is without a doubt the most famous beach in the world. The boulevard was designed by Brazilian architect Roberto Burle Mark. Copacabana immediately associates its visitors with the beach, the sun, the beautiful open sea, turquoise water and modern bars and restaurants along the coast. Today, Copacabana is a world-famous hotspot for tourists from all over the world. The neighborhood justifies its nickname "Princesinha do Mar" or Princess of the Sea.
Ipanema, a beautiful beach, in the beautiful part of Rio and the birthplace of the famous song "Garota de Ipanema" (Girl from Ipanema). Ipanema Beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy Rio. The beach stretches for 2 km between Jardim de Allah and Arpoador, which is famous for the large rock that separates it from Copacabana Beach. Ipanema is not just the name of the beach, it is actually the name of the city district in the southern zone of the city, after which the beach was named. Ipanema district was founded in 1894 as one of the richest areas of the city of Carioca, along with the neighboring districts of Leblon, Jardim Botânico and Gávea. Avenida Vieira Souto is the most expensive square in Latin America, and is located in this part of the city, Ipanema.
Red Beach or Vermelha Beach is one of the smallest beaches in the city of Rio but it is definitely one of the most beautiful. Red beach is located near the hill Urca. It is a small beach, but regardless of that, it is extremely appreciated because of its beautiful surroundings, because it is located between the Sugarloaf and Babylon hills. The beach is only a few hundred meters away from the foot of Sugarloaf Mountain, i.e. the cable car, and we definitely advise you to visit it when you come down from the mountain.
Arpoador is considered one of the best surfing spots in the city in Rio de Janeiro. Arpoador literally means harpoon thrower, it is actually a region in the southern part of the city, on a small peninsula between Ipanema and Copacabana. A rock in the ocean creates stable waves that break on it. Arpoador Beach is partly sandy and partly rocky beach located between the beginning of Ipanema Beach and Copacabana. It has an amazing view of Ipanema and Leblon. This is the birthplace of surfing culture in Rio de Janeiro and there are many surfing tournaments that are organized every year.

It is a popular place for surfing among the locals, and there are also parts of the year when there are almost no waves so that those who do not like to surf can also enjoy it. Prainha Beach is a well-kept secret among the locals but also among tourists who manage to get a recommendation from the locals.
