The beaches of Zona Sul are symbols of Rio across the globe, possessing a reputation for laid-back athleticism. Go with your private guide on a journey to appreciate the three elite beaches of Rio, with enough time to have a sunbath and swim on each. 

The One: Copacabana

Copacabana has a style all to itself. The king of Rio’s beaches, walking along its Portuguese pavement will bring you in touch with the city’s beachside style of living. Going past the famous Copacabana Palace, and the lesser-known but arguably more important Forte de Copacabana, your guide will be able to tell you about why both are icons in their own way. The beach itself is a joy to walk on, and your guide will be happy to recommend spots to relax where there are not too many people.

Where the Girl Walked

Most people have heard of Ipanema, if only through a certain bossa nova song made famous by Frank Sinatra. The girl from Ipanema is a well-known Brazilian character, and the beach is indeed an excellent place to watch cariocas pass by. Each postos has its own personality and it is definitely worth keeping an eye out for the sand sculptures that accompany the running tracks. 

Rio’s Chic Beach

Leblon has a lengthy past as Rio’s well-heeled beach. Next to the wealthiest part of Rio, it is very popular with people who are aiming to improve their physique. Stepping over its pristine sand, your guide will be happy to answer any questions you have about Brazilian’s relationship with the beach, or recommend the best kiosks to get a drink with which to watch the world go by.
