Situated just west of Ipanema Beach, Leblon and Ipanema in fact share the same beach, just like Leme and Copacabana. The border is a shallow canal and park known as Jardim de Ala (Allah’s Gardens). The wealthy consider this beach as they’re own little oasis. While similar to Ipanema, but even more exclusive, Leblon is home to Rio`s rich and famous. The beach is quieter and more relaxed than the hip and trendy beach of Ipanema. Leblon is known for having a very bohemian atmosphere, with a very lively nightlife at its modern and trendy bars, nightclubs. Visitors can enjoy many luxury boutiques, high-class hotels and top gourmet restaurants. Families also really enjoy this beach thanks to an area called Baixo Baby located at Posto 12. It is a very large enclosed playground for toddlers and young children. The enclosure keeps the children safe and makes it easier for adults to keep an eye on them while relaxing in paradise. Meanwhile, everywhere you will find tourists enjoying a walk around the area choosing between Thai, French and Brazilian food and just relaxing with a snack while sipping a beverage.
