Most scenic beach in Niterói

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...

The Itacoatiara beach is a beatiful beach! Swimmers, surfers and families can enjoy the water at different spots. The strip of sand isn't too short nor to big. There is food beeing selling.

Nested among big boulders, the beach is split into two, with the western most side being more suitable for kids, whilst the Eastern bit is a surfers paradise.

If you plan to spend some time in Rio de Janeiro I recommend you to see this paradise. It is placed in a city nearby and only a few tourists know it. It is most visited by locals, so on sunny weekends the beach is fulfilled of beautiful people.
