This is a little beach in between Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. There's a bunch of rocks you can climb up on and it is, like the others, gorgeous.

A great sight. Besides the weather, it's a great place to relax and see the ocean.

Go early and you will experience a wonderful and magnificent of both Ipanema, Leblon beaches and the Twin Brothers´Hills. Or else go at sunset.It is absolutely to go and it is worth it! This is a great place to see some free live music at the weekends great place to hang out for all ages and great during the day to watch the surfers strut their stuff and well... so many beautiful people.

A short little stretch of sand between Copacabana and Ipanema Beach, Praia do Arpoador is a popular place for surfers. It's cool seeing them in the morning out in the waves with their surfboards.

Só quem vivenciou um por do sol no Arpoador sabe o porque os cariocas amam esse local, toda tarde dezenas de pessoas se juntam para apreciar esse momento, não perca a oportunidade e aprecie o momento tomando uma saudável água de coco.

Mi momento favorito para ir a la playa de Arpoador es en las tardes cuando muchos locales se asoman en el area para luego ir a la piedra de Arpoador para ver el atardecer. A los Cariocas les encanta ver el atardecer y cada vez que se pone el sol ellos aplauden el suceso.
