Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Farme Gay Beach, getting its name from Rua Farme de Amoedo, a high street through Ipanema filled with gay nightlife and culture, is located just below this road.
The locals nickname it ‘Barbie Land’, a term used to describe the beautifully buff and polished men that parade this beach. However be careful using this term in the city, some men may find it offensive!
The gay section of the beach is clearly flagged with countless rainbow banners and gorgeous Brazilians in tiny speedos. If that’s not obvious enough, look for Posto (life guard towers) 8 and 9: the gay beach is between here.
TG Fun Fact! Posto 9 is actually where ‘The Girl from Ipanema’ bossa nova song was penned, so a great place to live your ‘tall, tan, young and lovely’ fantasy.

Great Gay Beach, but beware of thieves
“This is the main gay beach scene, but also the center number one location for beach theives. Always be aware of theives looking to steal cell phones, backpacks and gold jewerly. All items brought to the beach must be guarded at all times.“
