Neighborhood: Copacabana

Praia do Arpoador is one of the best surfing beaches in the area, even at night, with clean, almost transparent water. Locals come from all over to sunbathe on this small stretch of sand between Copacabana and Ipanema. It is also popular with elderly people who gather to play checkers every morning and families who are content to simply watch the surfers have a go at the waves. The Arpoador rock offers a great view of both Copacabana and Ipanema and the sunset is absolutely astonishing.
