If you like surfing and seeing beautiful people this is the beach in Niteroi. Not so packed with families with kids like Camboinhas this is the beach where young's come to meet friends and surf

It is a great beach surrounding Rio (30 km. from downtown). Nice, quiet, in the open sea, with the Costão in one side and the Pampo's rock in the other. In the beach you have to be cautious with the strings, which are very dangerous. Good for surfing.

A beautiful beach with good waves. The climb up Pedra do Costao is worth it for the view from the top. Some of the restaurants are a little expensive and the bus from the ferry station is slow. Go when you have the whole day.

The most eautiful beach. Used to be better, but still has its charm. Surfer beach, usually attracts younger and sporty people. Big waves depending on the season. Great view, bring your camera!!!

Probably the best beach in Niterói, better than most of Rio famous beaches. The problem is the distance from Niterói downtown. It's good for sightseeing and making friends, better for younger people (<30). Avoid it if you can't stand the smell of marijuana lol.
