Ipanema Beach

This famous beach is located in Ipanema, Rio’s upscale neighborhood with dozens of world-class restaurants, shops and cafes. Made famous by the catchy tune “The Girl from Ipanema,” Ipanema is also the site for nonstop waterfront action. Beachgoers stay active playing soccer, volleyball and footvolley, a local sport that is a combination of volleyball and soccer.
