Pedra da Macela, Cunha

(650+ reviews on the web)
Outdoor Activity
At 1840 meters (over 6,000 ft) above sea level, you will find Pedra da Macela, bordering the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The 360-degree panoramic views of the Cunha region will take your breath away … if the hike up doesn’t, that is. You can drive up the dirt road to the gate where you will leave your car, and then walk about 2 km (1.25 mi) up the paved road to the top. The spectacular views of the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other are well worth your effort. There is no infrastructure so bring water, sunscreen, maybe some snacks, and definitely your walking shoes. Use our Cunha trip generator to arrange your visit to Pedra da Macela and other attractions in Cunha.

  • Is a peak at the top of the Serra do mar with access by road Cunha Paraty. You can only go up walking and is well drawn, you need to breath, I think it takes about 50 minutes rising. Since subi a bike too, is pretty hard. At the top there's nothing, only the view is spectacular for the Bay of ilha grande. Beto Perroy

  • It's a wonderful place, with a unique tranquility, and all the times that I just found people with the same vibe, quiet and willing to really and only enjoy and enjoy nature, clean, with signs (made by the users themselves, but there are) and a wonderful view of Paraty, both at night as during the day.

  • Access is horrible, we were on April 1 and after many huge rocks on the way, we came across a passage that atolamos the car. The road is abandoned and is impossible to get to the site! Municipality of cunha, shame on you!
