Great place to take a look at the view of the city of Rio de Janeiro. The entrance is free. At the weekends, the restaurant offers breakfast from 9 to 13.

This park is a hidden natural paradise in Niterói. The view is absolutely spectacular. No wonder that this is one of the most visited places for those who like to jump paragliding. But not much to see besides that. There was a snack bar and a gift shop for souvenirs that are now closed, and the site is overgrown.

Probably the best views of Niteroi, Guannabara Bay and Rio on the horizon. I recommend it to anyone! And if you are thinking about paragliding, this is a great spot!

The sunset saw from here is something very special. There are 2 plataforms for Delta wings and Paragliders. You can sit at the west sided one and just watch the sky changing colors behind the Sugar Loaf. From Here you can see all the Guanabara Bay and all the oceanic beaches and lagoons from Niterói.

Wonderful view, comparable with the view from the Sugar Loaf Mountain. But actually you do not just see Rio de Janeiro but also the oceanic part of Niterói

The parque da Cidade of Niterói, on top of a steep hill, provides a fine view of the city of Niterói, but you can only reach it by car.

A breathtaking view awaits you in an location almost unknown by tourists. This public park is perched on top of a mountain in Niteroi, across from Rio on the other side of Guanabara Bay.
