Enjoy the many charms of vibrant Copacabana beach by relaxing in the sun, strolling the long beachfront walkway or browsing the oceanfront shops.

Depart from the pier and enjoy a scenic drive to the neighborhood of Copacabana, an area separated from the rest of Rio de Janeiro until a tunnel was built to connect them in 1892. Over the years, Copacabana rapidly grew around luxurious landmarks such as the famed Copacabana Palace, which is now considered a national monument. Later, the waterfront thoroughfare Avenue Atlantica was expanded, and a nearly 3-mile-long mosaic walkway was built along the beach in a black-and-white wave motif.

Even so, as you will discover, it is the beach at Copacabana that captures the most attention. After arriving at this lengthy crescent-shaped stretch of sand, you will have approximately three full hours to enjoy its charms. You can expect the beach to be bustling, and that is much of the appeal, as you will experience a true slice of Carioca life. There may be children playing soccer, retirees lounging under umbrellas, families frolicking in the surf, and people of all ages walking up and down the shoreline for miles.

You are free to enjoy Copacabana beach and the neighboring area however you please. You might sunbathe, take a refreshing swim or cross the Avenue Atlantica and browse the shops and restaurants that overlook the beach. At the designated time and location, you will meet your coach and transfer back to the pier.

Please note: Walking on this tour is at the guests’ discretion. The tour is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Casual clothing; swimsuit; sunglasses; sunscreen; a towel and bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended. Beach amenities, activities or food are not included in the cost of the tour. Guests should be prepared for the possibility of heavy traffic conditions and delays. Those who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility. Caution should be taken with any personal belongings at the beach and should not be left unattended. Those who miss the return transfer will be responsible for making their own way back to the ship at their own expense.
