Copacabana & Ipanema Beaches
Are there any more famous beaches in the world? Bondai perhaps.
They really are social focal points too with sports, music, parties, dancing and posing all hugely popular pastimes.
The Girl From Ipanema Lyrics
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes
Each one she passes goes “ah”
When she walks, she’s like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes goes “ooh”
But I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me
See the classic track performed by Astrud Gilberto in 1963 by clicking Ipanema.
