Arpoador Beach. A beautiful sunset on the Arpoador Beach.

Hey there! Are you hot? Well, in Rio you probably will be. And in a hot place, what’s better than a great beach? In our vídeo Dica today we’re refreshing at Arpoador Beach, this incredible place between Copacabana and Ipanema!

Arpoador Beach

Arpoador literally means harpoon thrower because in the past, it was common for whale hunting.

It was the first beach in Brazil to have a woman wearing a Bikini, a german model called Miriam Etz did it back in 1948!
The main reason why people visit Arpoador it’s for the rock formations, you can climb them and get amazing photos anywhere you look.

Surfer’s Beach

By having big waves, Arpoador is also known as Surfer’s beach, being the hotspot for surfing.

Clapping to the Sun

Cariocas have a tradition of clapping to the sun while it goes away at the end of the day, as a way of saying thanks for the incredible day.

That’s all for today, people!
