  • Copacabana Beach Tavel Guide

Copacabana is a bairro located in the South Zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro. It is known for its 4 km balneario beach, which is one of the most famous in the world. It begins at Princesa Isabel Avenue and ends at Posto Seis. There are two small beaches: inside Fort Copacabana and Diabo ("Devil") Beach.

The Copacabana promenade is a 4 kilometres pavement landscape in large scale. It was completed in 1970 and has used a black and white Portuguese pavement design since its origin in the 1930s. Hotels, restaurants, bars, night clubs and residential buildings dot the promenade.

Copacabana Beach plays host to millions of revellers during the annual New Year's Eve celebrations and, in most years, has been the official venue of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. It is also one of the four "Olympic Zones" during the 2016 Summer Olympics.
