Avenida Atlantica, with the iconic wavy sidewalk mosaic of Roberto Burle Marx, is ideal for strolling along Copacabana Beach. It is lined with beachside kiosks offering refreshments such as a chilled coconut, and at the far end is a quaint area where fishermen bring their fresh catch ashore.

A great seaside promenade, lined along the beach with small bars that sell drinks at reasonable prices. On the other side, many restaurants, and some are pretty good.

Beautiful avenue with the Atlantic Ocean and the beach of Copacabana on one side and luxurious hotels on the other side. To me, it felt like walking along the beaches of Cannes or Nice in the French Rivera.

Take a nice stroll on the famous side walk and its wavy Portuguese stone pattern. Good for your health and your eye-sight! Amazing view over the Sugar Loaf, Niteroi and southern beaches across the Guanabara bay.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
