Aside from being a catchy tune by Barry Manilow, Copacabana is one of Rio de Janeiro’s most famous and beautiful locations. Found in the Zona Sul, which is the southern zone of Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana is mostly known for its majestic Balneario beach, which is undoubtedly one of the most famous beaches in the entire world. The area was named after the Virgin de Copacabana, which is ironic considering the area is now teeming with bikini-clad and sometimes-topless sunbathers. It is not only beaches in Copacabana, as the area is also home to many important historical sites.

  • Walk to the north end of Copacabana Beach to see the historic Fort Copacabana, which was built in 1914 and once protected Rio de Janeiro from invaders.
  • Check out the black and white pavement landscape of the Copacabana Promenade, which was designed by Roberto Burle Marx, who is one of the most famous landscape architects in Rio de Janeiro.
  • Spend the day at Arpoador Beach, which is where Rio de Janeiro’s best surfers come to catch huge waves and which will be part of the Olympic Zones during the 2016 Olympics that will be held in the city.

Since Copacabana is serviced by more than forty different bus lines and also has three nearby Metro stations, visitors will have no problem reaching the area from just about anywhere in Rio de Janeiro. The area is also a hub for car travel, as there are three main arteries intersecting Copacabana, so it is easy to get around by hired motorcycle or car if people choose to avoid the buses and trains. Although the area is probably best explored on foot, some brave souls hire bicycles and ride them around the promenade.
