Hidden between Copacabana and Ipanema, you will find Arpoador Beach, which is popular with families and the more mature beach goers. Arpoador is mostly known for being one of the most popular metropolitan beach surfing areas in Rio. The beach has natural trails that are ideal for a morning or evening walk with splendid views of the coastline making it attractive for couples taking a romantic stroll, or families with children. You can climb the rocks around the beach as long as you have on a good pair of walking shoes. The base of the rocks is packed with large lights that illuminate the beach at night attracting surfers who show off their skills in the waves from dusk to dawn. Spectators often sit on the rocks that overlook the best surf areas to enjoy watching the many surfers that always draw crowds of visitors. The sunsets at Arpoador in midsummer attract even larger crowds to watch the sun setting over the sea, a rare event on a generally east-facing coast. During these nightly spectacles, onlookers tend to cheer when the sun disappears into the sea.
