Ipanema Beach

Hotels near Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil .

Situated on the south side of Rio de Janeiro, Ipanema is a wealthy neighborhood immortalized by the famous 1962 song, The Girl From Ipanema, by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Ipanema Beach is divided by postos, or lifeguard towers, and ever since the famous song, Posto 9 has been especially famous as a spot where celebrities, soccer players, models, and artists converge.

Ipanema Beach is widely regarded as one of the best beaches in all of Brazil, with surf reaching nine feet in the winter, and marked by the Two Brothers Mountains at the western end of the beach. On Sundays, the road nearest the beach is closed to motor vehicles so that pedestrians, bicyclists, skateboarders, and roller skaters may carouse the street along the ocean. The Ipanema neighborhood is also popular for its wide array of cafes, restaurants, and shops, and is far easier to navigate than some other areas of Rio due to the fact that is was constructed on a grid.

The neighborhood is located in the Zona Sul district of Rio de Janeiro, between Copacabana Beach and the Leblon neighborhood. Especially notable events include the Carnivale Festival, which is separate from that of greater Rio and attracts over 15,000 people to the neighborhood. Local hotel accommodations include the Hotel Praia Ipanema, Mar Ipanema Hotel, Best Western Sol Ipanema, and the Hotel Ipanema Plaza.
