Red Beach is locally called ‘Praia Vermelha’ or Vermelha Beach. It is located in Guanabara Bay in South Atlantic Ocean, close to Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Its approach is in front of Sugarloaf Mountain Cable Car Ticket Office through Praca (Park, Square) General Tiburcio. It is called Red beach as the sand on the coast becomes pink with the rays of the sun in the afternoon. It offers a wonderful view of Sugarloaf Mountain and the traffic of cable cars running up and down on cables from ground station to Morro da Urca upto Pao de Acucar.
