Here, you can sunbathe, practice water sports, such as surfing and swimming. Please note that you should be very cautious about swimming at Copacabana, as the strong current creates high waves and not everyone can easily cope with them.
Copacabana gained its popularity in the ‘50s, when musicians, artists, writers, or the so-called "cream of society", started buying real estate in the vicinity of the beach. The story goes that the girls in bikini for the first time appeared in public here, at Copacabana. The public was totally delighted and welcomed split swimsuits with a great enthusiasm.
