Itacoatiara remains as one of my favorite beaches ever. Surrounded by mountains it looks amazing, the water is a joy (although the surf can be a bit treacherous at times) and the climb up to the costao has one of the most amazing views I've even seen!

You should visit this awesome beach! The landscape is unique with a mixture of nature and beautiful people. Exotic look and on the left side you can take a hike up to the top of the rock and enjoy it from the top

It's really far for those who stay in Rio (it's also far for those in Niteroi) but there is a paradise there waiting for you. A very good environment, nice people (even in the weekends) from friends, youth to families and seniors - except in the summer hot hot days - and the fantastic natural sandwich at Costão side plus...

White sand, fantastic surroundings (no buildings at your back!). More natural, wilder at cleaner compared to Copacabana. A must check!

Itacoatiara has the most beautiful sunset in the whole city. Visitors stand in the rocks waiting for the sky to be filled with colours, from pink to orange.

The most popular beach for Teenagers and "Young Adults". You have a long strip of sand and a calm beach on the right and a beautiful rock mountain named "Costão de Itacoatiara" where you can hike and climb.

High mountains, safe neighborhood, beach bars, clean water, big waves, beautiful people -- what's not to love? Heed those "No Bathing" signs, that undertow is not to be taken lightly.

A great place for surfers and Nature lovers. The view for those who dare to climb the rock on the left side of the beach is fantastic

Its a nice and clean beach with some tasty sandwiches going on :) Everybody that goes there MUST climb the "costão", its a very beautiful view of niteroi and rio.. it might be a little tricky for someone out of shape, but not impossible! the beach is a little dangerous, though... tourists that arent familiar must be always paying attention...
