Leme is actually the first mile of the sandy crescent known as Copacabana. Located between the Morro do Leme and Avenida Princesa Isabel, this stretch is less touristy than its more famous cousin. Locals like to bring the family here, to play beach soccer or volleyball and relax under umbrellas while munching away on shrimp and grilled pieces of fish. On the edge of the rocks you can see a horde of fishermen trying to catch the fish of the day. Leme makes for a more wallet-friendly outing than many of Rio's other areas.
