Along its ten-block length, the sublime beach of Ipanema offers soccer-volley courts, fitness exercise equipment and public toilettes and showers for people’s disposal. People also enjoy the stalls where cold beer and caipirinha -a traditional brazilian liquor made from fermented sugarcane- are sold.
Ipanema beach is divided into segments by "postos", where the lifeguard towers are located. Among these, one of the most popular “sections” is the Posto Nove, because it is located after the 9th lifeguard tower in which many young cariocas meet up. There is also an area located near Rua Farme de Amoedo called “the gay beach”, which is of course a “gay-friendly area”.
To remark all the above said, it bears mentioning that the Travel Channel chose Ipanema beach as the sexiest beach in the world! Therefore, if you are planning a trip to Rio, Ipanema will be your sexiest spot.
