World's Most Crowded Beaches

Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Made world-famous by a bossa nova song, "The Girl from Ipanema," Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro is perhaps, next to Copacabana, Brazil's most popular beach. Expect to see more than just sun bathers on the beach, which is bustling with activity. There are volleyball and soccer games, and windsurfing and wakeboarding in the water, while vendors stroll the stretch of sand to sell everything from beach towels and swimsuits to drinks and coconuts. If you want to relax, Ipanema Beach may not be for you, but if you're up for some people-watching, this beach will not bore.
