It is recently renovated, with a modern aspect, but yet, unusually wild. The weather is perfect for taking a swim and relaxing at the sun, between September and March, but in March usually rains a lot, so it is best to avoid this month. The restaurants are really special and each waiter gives his best to please you and serve you in a matter that you will, surely come back. Ipanema is one of the most exotic places in the world, due to its various landforms. During the day you can stay on the beach, enjoying the silence, the sun and water and at night you will find all sorts of opened pubs, where the fun goes on until the sunrise.

Bowling Ball is a part of Schooner Gulch, located in the Northern California. It looks like the masterpiece of a sculptor, but the artist is Nature, itself! The huge rocks, perfectly round, just come out of the water, forming an exotic landscape, unique in the world. There is no direct road that will take you there, the only way for someone to arrive there, is to climb the hills that surround this place. There is no scientific explanation for this phenomenon, other the fact that the water has eroded the rock, until they have arrived to perfectly round boulders. If you are interested in discovering genuine corners of the world, Bowling Balls Beach is one of those places. You can stay at a 2 stars hotel, near the beach, with only 90 Euros per night, a double room.
