“Nice but a bit abandoned”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

The famous Arpoador stones are really nice, with beautiful views over the beaches and sunset. Should be better taken care, with better walking tracks and a public toilet around, as we could smell some "leftovers". Info about the place and songs and movies about it could be a plus.

“nothing to talk of”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

not visually very stunning, but the surroundings help it look a bit better . its quite special in its mount at the edge and the facilities around , but i would not go there expecting a delight!

“It's a Nice Place to Watch”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

If you're staying in Ipanema or Copacabana.. Arpoador beach area is the place where the two beaches come together. There is a wonderful restaurant at the Arpoador Inn, which is a fabulous seafood (expensive) resturant which is directly on the beach, with nice inside seating too. The beach itself is mostly for locals and surfers and just a few blocks from Ipanema--they're practically the same beach.. just several blocks away. It's a great place to walk and go to an area that you can "climb" up some area to view both Copacabana Beach (See Sugar Loaf) and view Ipanema/Leblon beach. Just be careful, as always, if you go after dark. Otherwise everything is safe during the day.. it's just having to be more careful in the night hours.
