Arpoador 4.0 rating


Arpoador Beach, a 500 metre stretch between Copacabana and the Ipanema beach, is one of the best surfing beaches in Rio’s Zona Sul. The rock outcrop jutting into the Atlantic creates stable left breakers which can go upto 10 ft on east swells and south-west winds. The views here are fantastic, with Corcovado and Sugarloaf in the distance, and golden sunsets in the evenings.
