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!

The view is wonderful, breathtaking. From there, you have a complete view of the city of Niterói and also from Rio city. That's also a very romantic place

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
