RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) - After jetting into Brazil to watch the World Cup opening match, Leonardo DiCaprio decided to hit the beach, pointing his luxury yacht toward the famous turquoise waters off Buzios.

DiCaprio, 39, has been spotted shopping, strolling on the beach and soaking up the sun around the resort town made famous by French actress Brigitte Bardot when she vacationed there in the 1960s.

The Wolf Of Wall Street star travelled to Brazil on a private jet Wednesday with 21 friends and is staying on a 147m yacht that belongs to Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, the owner of the Manchester City football club.

The yacht, the Topaz, is the fifth-largest in the world and sports three pools, a gym, a jacuzzi, two helipads and a movie theatre. Its value is estimated at US$400 million (S$500 million).
