This area is monumental, high rise modern residential buildings and fancy villas along some side streets. Our tour bus had a short break there. The beach is less crowded, we didn’t swim but the waves were calmer compared to Copacabana beach. We had coconut drinks...More

Leblon is the place to stay on the beach if your travel has time under the sun. The beach is beautiful, not very crowded, unless if it is a sunny weekend, and offer great views for pictures. The sunset is a must.

Enjoy beach and lunch combo. Take some hours at the sand, drink some "Mate" and coconut water. Reserve your self some more hours to have lunch at one of the many bars and restaurants in area.

A more relaxed and less hectic beach than Copacabana. Great shops and cafes. A lovely place to visit. Shops more upmarket.

Not as crowded as Ipanema beach, Leblon is beautiful! Just observing people exercizing with their bikes or just jogging is worth the visit. The sea can be rough, sometimes.

In addition to being one of the most upscale
neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming,
elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the
most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along
with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some
places open all night). One of the best places to
visit is the beach, located under the impressive
“Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a
