Copacabana Beach (in Portuguese: Praia de Copacabana) is a famous beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is one of the three landmarks in Rio that Koopa Troopas steal artifacts from the PC and SNES versions of Mario is Missing!, specifically taking a Copacabana beach seashell from the beach, and Luigi's task is to find and return it. He receives 1,350 dollars for returning it.

Copacabana Beach also appears as the hub area in the Wii U version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
