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. You can hike or walk at the Costão Rock or even go to the Prainha with the little kids. It is a beach frequented mainly by young... More

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. The scenery is absolutely beautiful at any time of the day, but particularly mesmerising in late afternoon. A piece of warning, the beauty masks one of the most treatcheorus beaches I have... More

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.

This is by no means a deserted beach. Locals are very aware of it and it can get crowded. Nevertheless, it's worth visiting. There's also a big rock that borders the beach that you can climb/hike to the top of (I think it takes about 45 minutes - bring shoes).

The beach is amazing! Nice dunes, surrounded by vegetation. It is a great place to meet the beautiful people of Niterói. Surfers, bodyboardders, beautiful men and women, families...you will see a great mix of people. But when the beach is empty, the natural landscape fills your soul. A beach that you must to see!
