The atmosphere is what makes Copacabana one of the most famous beaches in the world. Roughly 160,000 people live in the city of Copacabana, and thousands of others are visiting at any time (especially for the iconic New Year’s Eve celebration). Enjoy the warm water, soak in some rays, visit the famous bars and restaurants or simply enjoy a long afternoon of people-watching. The crowds and entertainment on this 4-kilometre-long stretch of sand never disappoint.

In this video, I visited the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro. I rented a bike and also did some stand-up paddleboarding. There are always fun things to do if you are visiting these beaches in Brazil.
