Copacabana Beach

From the series “Dangerous and Treacherous Beaches That Can Be Lethal”
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.

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.
