  • The Gazebo is recommended for photos because they're wonderful. It was a rewarding and relaxing ride.

  • Is a tourist point, unfortunately lack a maintenance on the square, because I realized that the monument is very dirty, lack of water in the pond of the whale. Taking what I quoted above is worth visiting at night or day to take pictures.

  • Stunning view of the open sea. Indescribable. Hard to be translating into words what you see from a gazebo.

  • It features a big statue of a whale. It has several bench but sadly no shadows to cool yourself. It does have a really pretty view from Costa Azul's Beach and it's quite spacious.
  • A very small park with a large sculpture of a whale. More for families but it is next to a short path up a hill with beautiful views of the beaches. It is a very short walk from one of various beautiful beaches in Costa Azul.
  • Nice place to go
  • Ok

Where to stay in Rio das Ostras

As a growing seaside resort destination, Rio das Ostras features a blend of old and new, glitzy and down-to-earth in terms of places to stay. The majority of the city's larger hotels and more glamorous resort-style accommodations lie within a few blocks of the main beaches, and the area along the Praia Costa Azul features a particular concentration. As you might imagine, many hotels charge extra for an ocean view, so consider requesting a room without one to save a bit on lodging. As is the case throughout Brazil, you'll find plenty of "pousadas"--something like independently run, small-scale hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses--scattered around town, which often make solid budget options.
