The fact that Brazil has such a long coastline means that there are many different types of beaches that can appeal to all kinds of travelers. This article aims to explore precisely this diversity by showing you all the unique and unbelievable wonders that Brazil has to offer.

Rio has two of the most popular beaches in the world: Copacabana and Ipanema. So, if you are visiting Rio during the high season you have to be prepared to find a huge crowd sunbathing in both these places (you might even struggle to find a spot for your beach towel).
It is truly fascinating if you consider that Copacabana beach has more than 2.5 miles of sand. It also offers a wide range of sports activities and the city has great hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs.
Remember that the city of Rio de Janeiro is not exactly known to be the safest place in the world for tourists – so take all the necessary precautions to avoid major problems.
Ipanema beach became worldwide famous thanks to the magnificent song “The Girl From Ipanema” –written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraisin 1962 that won a Grammy three years later (the English version was written by Norman Gimbel).
