The beach is the most democratic space in my opinion....At least in Rio you can find everytime, no matter if you are rich or poor. There are people who adore privacy and they will think...too crowded!!! But there are people who would really have fun to spend the whole day in a beach like this!!!
Well, Copacabana is like that...Or you love or you hate it. In this case...I LOVE COPACABANA!!! And I am proud to live here! : )))))
It is one of the most beautiful symbols of my dear city Rio de Janeiro, it is very populated and one of the most popular beach among many other beaches that we can found in our coastline! Copacabana is now a very urban district but it gives you such an incredible notion of the city's landscape, from there you see the Sugar Loaf, Niteroi, the rocks of Copacabana Fort and the beautiful skyline of our famous beach.
BUT THE CARIOCAS ALWAYS GO TO THE BEACH....Just like football and Carnaval, BEACH is religion to our people!!!
And this is how a beach can be absolutely packed in a high sunny (and hot) SUNDAY!!!!
