Copacabana Beach, Brazil

From series “Dangerous and treacherous beaches that can be lethal”
Lenght: 4,000 meters.

The legendary Brazilian Copacabana Beach, located in Rio de Janeiro, is one of the most dangerous beaches in the world. Not the poisonous medusae and the wild animals, but the ordinary robbers, whose doomsday sacrifices are daily dozens of people, are the main danger of the beach. For a trip to the popular beach you should not take any valuable things with you. Anyone who is recovering on the beach alone should not leave the garments and the towels unattended. The robbers will steal them instantly.

Copacabana Beach, Brazil The beach length is quite large and forms about 4 000 meters. Along the beach there is an incredibly beautiful Avenida Atlantica, with countless cozy restaurants and shops. Today one can hardly imagine that a small fishing village Copacabana was located just a few decades ago on the site of today's giant beach resort. In recent decades, this district has been known not only for its active infrastructure, but also for its crime.

Drugs, prostitution, numerous crooks and bags - so are the distinctive features of the popular Brazilian beach. If some precautions are taken, the rest on the coast can be quite safe. Resting on the beach, you should not talk with unknown people and do not close business with them. On the beach you should take as little valuable things as possible and never leave them unattended.
