Things to do in Ipanema during my holidays in Rio de Janeiro

11 July 2019

Everything is ready, you have booked your stay and decided to stay in Ipanema for your holiday rental in Rio de Janeiro! Rio is a vibrant city where each district of the city has its own soul and atmosphere. Ipanema does not derogate from this rule. This chic and trendy district in the southern part of Rio is home to restaurants and luxury boutiques, but also enjoys a beautiful natural environment. Here are some ideas for a nature tourism experience during your stay in Ipanema!

Enjoy a day at Ipanema Beach

Ipanema Beach is the main natural attraction of the district! From post 7 to post 10, the beach extends over 2.6 km, from Arpoador to its limit with Leblon beach. According to your desire of the moment, come and do your sport by running along the bay, using the sports equipment provided for free or by playing volleyball or footvolley on the beach.

For those who love idleness, sit in one of the waterfront kiosks and enjoy a cool coconut water! If you prefer to have your feet in the sand, book a chair, a parasol, and sunbathe while sipping a caipirinha. Of course, don't forget to set foot in the water!

Walking around the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon

The Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon is nicknamed "the heart of Rio de Janeiro". The one that is known mainly as "Lagoa" is a sublime natural lake in the heart of the city. Surrounded by vegetation and overlooked by the surrounding mountains, it is a peaceful and bucolic place. 7.38 km of pedestrian and bicycle paths surround the lagoon, which allows you to practice various sporting activities: running, walking, skateboarding, rollerblading, cycling or scooter. You can also enjoy the beauty of Lagoa by renting a small swan boat to sail in complete serenity.

Watch the sunset in Arpoador

The Stone of Arpoador is a rocky promontory located at the very beginning of the beach of Ipanema.
The name Arpoador recalls the time when fishermen used to come on this stone to fish with a harpoon. Today, it is a must for tourists who come to discover Rio de Janeiro, for visiting or regular surfers, but also for locals who come to relax there during the week and especially on weekends.

The ritual not to be missed is to come and sit down and admire the sunset beneath the Morro Dos Irmãos. A show that should delight both adults and children, families, couples or groups of friends.
