Copacabana Beach – www.mapsofworld.com

Copacabana Beach, Brazil

“For sheer spectacle and non-stop entertainment, it’s got to be Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro. The moment you step foot on this fabled beach local lads will sort you out with sun loungers and umbrellas, and a never-ending supply of liquid refreshments: beer, caipirinhas, soft drinks and freshly opened coconuts (complete with straw). 

Sorted? From then on you’ll be entertained by vendors who roam the beach selling everything from bikinis and sunscreen to jewellery and sunglasses, as well as fresh watermelon, ice cream, and even prawns and haloumi, which they cook right in front of you on little portable barbecues. 

Gorgeous cariocas (residents of Rio) show off their beach volleyball and futevôlei (soccer volleyball) skills in front of girls in teeny tiny bikinis, all along this iconic four-kilometre-long stretch of sand in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.” – Ginny Cumming, editor
