Adjacent to Ipanema, near the Arpoador garden. Nice, but not so attractive as Ipanema. Lots of people.

Arpoador beach is the scenary of one of the most iconic views in Rio. It is at one of the extreme points of Ipanema Beach. The green, transparent sea is very good for surfers but is also swimmable for those who aren't that used to beach sports. The rock that gives it's name for the beach is a good point for photos and sightseeing, however, as everyplace in Rio, one should be aware that the paths that circle the rock are the perfect place for thieves to act. Avoid being alone on the rock.

One of the most remarkable sunsets you will ever see in your life, between the two brothers mountains it is just unbelievable. It is a ritual, everybody goes to the Arpoador Stone to wait the sunset and as soon as it starts everybody applauds it. Nice beach for surfers.

Arpoador Beach stretches and becomes Ipanema, then Leblon. It's one continuous sweep with that famous view of Two Brothers mountains in the background. Surf here. Enjoy a coco d'agua. Buy something from the vendors who walk the beach from one end to another. But enjoy the sun and the beautiful Brazilians in and out of the water.
