Many people know about this beach not from geography lessons and not from their own tourist experience, but thanks to the popular jazz song of the bossa nova “Girl from Ipanema” (“Garota de Ipanema”).

It is interesting that in translation from the Tupi language this toponym is translated as “bad, dangerous waters.” In fact, the waves on this section are quite aggressive, so the beach is definitely worth a visit for surfers, but be careful for those who just went here to swim.
