Its beauty is such that it inspired the song "A garota de Ipanema" written by the composers Vinicius de Moraes and Antonio Carlos Jobim.bordering the very chic and posh district of Ipanema, itself located in the southern zone of Rio de Janeiro, Ipanema Beach is extended, on the west side, by Leblon beach with which it is separated by a canal.

Culinary specialities offered on the beach
In Ipanema Beach, you can taste "guaravitions", "natural sandwiches" but also gourmet desserts such as Açaí ice cream, a flavour that is still little known in Europe and comes from a fruit bearing the same name and growing in the Amazonian forest.
