Watersports are in good supply with all types of activites on this section of beach.
For those interested in shopping, there is a modest selection of tourist shops set back from the beach selling beach related goods and tourist trinkets. A better selection of shops can be found a few streets further back. Eating Out offers a fairly wide selection of restaurants and bars which line the beach (and neighbouring Ipanema). Accommodation is varied but consist mainly of 2-3 star hotels with the odd upmarket hotel in the vicinity. Local excursions consist of a cable car ride up Corcovado mountain to the Staute of Christ the Redeemer; a cable car ride up Sugar Loaf Mountain; organised trips to the Favella's (recommended through major holiday companies only); a trip to the Maracana football stadium.
