“See the surfers and walk on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

During summer and good sweel you have a nice left hand wave with nice pipes, or if the swell is low, the clear watters of the Atlantic welcomes you to a nice dive and some body surfing

“Great waves!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This seems to be a "hot spot" where many Cariocas hang out! Surfers were out in the water, catching epic waves. Wonderful place to lay out your canga, get a caipirinha and people watch!

“Beatiful Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are in Rio and have a chance, watch the sunset from this place. Probably one of my favorite spots in Rio, though sometimes and weekends can get too crowded.

“Clap for the sunset!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Arporador is a beach, but there's also a big rock jutting out into the water there, where people gather to watch the nightly sunset. It can get crowded (we were there on a Rio holiday) so arrive early for a good spot. But any place that provides applause for a sunset is tops in my book - and it was applause-worthy. Probably the second-best place to view the sunset (after Sugar Loaf.)
