Piratininga, and specially Prainha, are great beaches to visit in Niteroi...However, you should try to avoid weekends because they are very crowded...Prainha is unique, with small little rock islands nearby, and a beautiful view of Copacabana!

Niteroi beaches across the bay from Rio are not as famous but they are also beautiful and uncrowded. The people at Piratininga beach are friendly and there are many Kiosk Restaurants to have beer, food, coconut juice and enjoy the sun. Also great for people watching. I like this beach because you can feel very safe and unworried while enjoying... More

I did not see Comboinhas Beach listed, it is lovely. The beaches on the Niteroi side are all worth visiting, clean, quiet, uncrowded, and you will even find shells washed up.

Not much to do since the water is very dirty, but a nice walk. Very close to the MAC museum, good reference spot to ask the bus to stopç at on your way there.

It is still a wild beach. As an ocean beach not a bay beach one must be careful since the sea there is kind of rough.
