Despite its name; Praia do Diabo or the Devil’s Beach is a true paradise with a wonderful environment surrounded by palm trees. This small yet beautiful beach is located just to the left of the rocks at Arpoador separating Ipanema from Copacabana. The serene waters attract swimmers and families looking for a quiet spot to enjoy the sand and sun for the day. The beach offers a great view of Corcovado, Copacabana Fort and Sugar Loaf Mountain. There are a number of restaurants and a few hotels along the beachfront to enjoy some guilt free local cuisine. There is also a rustic outdoor gym affectionately known by the locals as the Flintstones Gym that is great for working off any of your over-indulgences at the nearby eateries.
