This spectacular beach, whose original name was Arao, name of the patriarch of fishing families that lived before she became famous touristically, visited for its natural features: a stunning contrast to the dry palm sand that runs parallel to calm and transparent sea full natural pools.

In addition, a green creek empties into the right side of the beach creating an image worthy of a postcard from a trip for honeymooners, a brochure or a landscape painting excursions dazzling.

The few that exist Espelho posadas, completely fill in the festive period known as the Brazilian Carnival and Reveillon, so if you visit the beach at this time is advisable to book your accommodation in advance.

The inns are recommended over Porto Espelho, Recanto do Espelho or Pousada do Baiano, with different price ranges, but all articles meeting the requirements for a good stay.

Stroll along the coast of the beach is definitely one of the best activities in Praia Espelho. At low tide you can go around the rocks on the left side of the beach and find other good nearby beaches: Praia dos Amores, whose waters are, if possible, still more blue than the Espelho and Outeiro, another beach very advisable to spend the afternoon.

If we were in for a dip Leblon, still well worth a walk from Ipanema. If we want to look good views of the beach of Leblon and Ipanema can access the Mirante do Leblon up a small mound that is the end of the beach (the opposite side from Ipanema), where Niemeyer Avenue starts going to the neighborhood of São Conrado.

The beach is on the Atlantic Ocean coast and extends from the Fort of Copacabana to a solid rock cliff called the Morro do Leme. Behind this hill is the famous Sugar Loaf and the fort across the equally famous Ipanema beach.

Although the promenade and beach are continuous belong to two different neighborhoods, the Copacabana and Leme. That’s why I called the Copacabana Beach, about three miles, and Leme beach, the division occurring in Princesa Isabel Avenue. For our purposes does not make much difference but do not want to offend anyone by omitting this information.

The tour consists mainly of the famous sidewalk with his drawings in waves or waves. In this we see people walking sidewalk and other running. Some sat in the stands taking coconut water or other liquid with the highest percentage of alcohol. Everywhere there are vendors who never tire of offering their goods although few would buy.

Between the sidewalk and the ocean is the famous beach. When we were starting the season and many people were already there during daylight hours. It is an ideal place to meet other people from around the world or to tan. By the way, regarding the locker room, we saw a lot more fabric on the beaches of other countries we have been. There are always exceptions, but what we witnessed was that the control that is advertised both among foreign in Rio.
