Tips from locals
This is one of the smaller beaches in Rio de Janeiro, and forms the upper end of Copacabana Beach, where it sits below a small mountain - Moro do Leme.
The sunset view here is beautiful. Sometimes there is live music at the kiosks. The beach is a little bit calmer here and less crowded.
The best part of our beach. Clean water, great view, and another Fortress - Forte do Leme, where you can climb the hill. The Army controls the entrance.
