Sugar Loaf??? The Christ??? It is so easy to go there and so obvious when you come to Rio...these are the icons of the city, but we should see the outskirts, we should see the surroudings and pay attention about locals have to say. Parque da Cidade should be not in the first positions in the ranking of Niteroi, it... More

Excellent view of the whole of Guanabara Bay, including Sugar Loaf, Corcovado. and ocean beaches of Niterói. Special place for those practicing hang gliding. Breakfast from 9am with unforgettable scenery.

A simple and down to Earth place that offers some of the best views you can get from Guanabara bay. I would suggest visiting it in mid to late afternoon, and waiting for the sunset. Even during the peak of summer, the place offers a pleasant environment, with a nice breeze keeping it a few degrees cooler than the city.

Well worth a visit, the views are incomparable. Hang on tight to young children though, the drops are sheer in places and there are no safety railings at all. We visited in the afternoon and apart from groups of teenagers it seemed rather deserted and little known by tourists. Simply stunning vistas across Rio.

Don't miss this spot near sunset! It will be crowded but the views of Guanabara Bay and the Atlantic are second to none. A great place to view Pao de Acucar and the Rio beaches, from.

Amazing place, with an amazing view. It is my favorite place for sightseeing, by far! A clear and open view of the whole Guanabara Bay, Rio-Niteroi Bridge and Rio de Janeiro. And totally free!

Absolutely stunning, magnificent view of the city and the Baia de Guanabara! There are hang gliders jumping from there, it's really cool. There's a cafe', bathrooms and parking is free. Best enjoyed on a sunny day!

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!
