It is famously known for its elegance and social qualities. Two mountains called the Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers) rise at the western end of the beach. The beach is divided into segments by marks known as postos (lifeguard towers). Beer is sold everywhere on the beach along with the traditional cachaça. There are always circles of people playing football, volleyball, and footvolley, a locally invented sport that is a combination of volleyball and football.
In the winter the surf can reach nine feet. The water quality varies with days of light-blue water to a more murky green after heavy rains. Constant swells keep the water clean. The often treacherous beach break regularly forms barrels.
Just west of this colorful section and towards Leblon is another popular stretch of sand known as Posto 10 (10th lifeguard tower).
The Travel Channel listed Ipanema Beach as the sexiest beach in the world.

La descripción del departamento fue correcta y la ubicación excelente, muy cerca de la playa y de la estación del metro.
Passei duas semanas no apartamento da Karen e minha experiência foi incrível. O apartamento é muito bem localizado, em uma rua tranquila e bem pertinho da praia e do comércio. Karen foi ágil na nossa negociação e muito prestativa ao compartilhar dicas dos locais próximos. O apartamento é mais amplo do que apresentado nas fotos. Voltaremos!
I stayed in Karen's apartment for two weeks with my family, wife and baby daughter. First off, the location is amazing, all the services you need are really close, and the beach is right there. The cafe's near by are pretty good, there is a good selections and there is a Starbucks not too far away for those who need that fix. There is a cool market each week on the square near by and we enjoyed that too.
The apartment is better than it looks in the photographs. It feels so much bigger and brighter in real life. The two bedrooms were perfect for my family, Karen was kind enough to supply us with a cot for our baby. Air con in all the rooms and the TV had a couple of English channels.
Apartment has 24/7 doorman and the building is in good condition, it was all very pleasant and enjoyable. There were plenty of towels supplied in the apartment and the bathroom was clean. Gas stove and microwave for cooking and large fridge for keeping your own food in.
All in all we were very happy.
Estuve por una semana con mi bebe y el departamento estuvo muy bueno, limpio, confortable y comodo. Lo recomiendo y de seguro volvere a ir una proxima vez si esta disponible. Mi unico consejo es apenas uno entra al departamento, probar todos los aires acondicionados ya que alguno no funciono. La seguridad es muy buena y amable. No pude conocer ni a la dueña ni al hermano que se encarga del departamento, el contacto fue solo via email.
Un appartement spacieux et très bien placé. Un accès facile et un accueil agréable par les gardiens de l'immeuble. Appartement très propre a notre arrivée
Quelques soucis avec le chauffe-eau assez rapidement réglés par Daniel
Néanmoins surpris par cet appartement qui semblait "habité", des brosses à dents dans les verres à dents, des restes de nourriture dans le frigidaire et dans le congélateur, des draps et serviettes étendues dans le cellier,. Nous nous attendions a un appartement moins personnalisé! Une literie aussi très ferme.
Séjour toutefois très agréable
Great location, and apartment was clean and well provided. The communications with Karen and Dani were quick and easy and arrangements were made simply. Very nice experience!
