Praia de Leblon

Ipanema & Leblon

Separated from Ipanema by the gardens and canal of Jardim de Alah, Leblon Beach attracts families and has a slightly more sedate vibe than its eastern counterpart. Parents with little ones may want to check out Baixo Bebê, between postos 11 and 12, where you'll find a small playground on the sand as well as other young families.
