posto 12, located at the end of leblon beach across from rua aristide espinola, is a particularly quiet stretch of sand. normally a favorite spot of many nannies during the week, taking care of the children of local residents, it can get crowded during the week-ends. on days of high tide, some surfers migrate from posto 7 and ride the waves around the rocks of posto 12. while there is no clear distinction in the crowds between posto 11 and posto 12, generally it is made up of leblon's residents, families, and an overall upscale crowd. many athletes practice here, especially volley players and, while they do not normally mix into the crowds, are always great to watch as they play on the sand fields by the promenade.
