The Beautiful Ipanema Beach in Rio

The Famous Ipanema Beach Is The Paradise For Surfers And Bathers.

The splendid beach of Ipanema that inspired Carlos Jobim to write the song 'Girl from Ipanema' is perhaps more famous than Copacabana and for a reason too. The beach is a paradise for surfers and sun bathers. This trendy, chic and upscale beach is also made lively by the young men and women who play football and volleyball here. Ipanema beach is also known for its vibrant nightlife when Carioca men and women take to the beach and party all night.The Beautiful Ipanema Beach in RIo

The Ipanema Surf Calls

The beach is divided into two parts marked by postos or lifeguard towers. The calm waters are ideal for a swim and there are also separate sections for mothers and children. Posto 9 is the hotspot of the beach and is popular with people of all ages. Ipanema beach is famous for the beautiful women who are frequently spotted here and not surprisingly the tanga, a tiny bikini worn by both men and women originated here. The beach is gay friendly and has a rainbow flag flying in the gay section near Rua Farme de Amoedo.

Surfing in Ipanema

During winter the waves here go to a height of 9 feet and above. Belly boarding, sailing and surfing are just some of the activities that will keep you occupied. The Ipanema beach has a number of cafes, bars and kiosks that will also keep you well hydrated. The best time to visit is during the Carnival and on Sundays when the closest roads are closed, allowing skateboarders and roller-skaters to have a free run over the place.
