Ipanema is one of the most visited beaches in Rio, though the poor water quality makes it unfit for swimming and aquatic activities. The busy beach has the Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers) to the west, which form a beautiful silhouette in the gorgeous sunsets. Young people flock here in hordes for a spot in the sun, to people-watch the beautiful beach bums, and to join in the action – there are multitudes playing soccer and volleyball.
