A beach with breathtaking views, Urca Beach is perfect if you want to blend in with the locals. This small beach faces Guanabara Bay and provides you with views of Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. The placidity of the water is perfect for taking a dip and hiking is possible along the path behind the kids’ park. The infrastructure is good with bathrooms, cafes, and restaurants. Enjoy some refreshing coconut water and in the evening you might even hear a Peruvian flute being played.

  • I want to register that the picture that appears is the Red beach that lies exactly on the way up the Sugar Loaf cable. The beach of Urca is face to the IED, the Urca Girl, Bar Restaurant Belmont ... The Urca is a super nice and safe place for a late afternoon, with a wonderful view of the Guanabara Bay and the Christ the Redeemer Statue.

  • Caught the eyes of many fishermen across the rocks by the beach. And young people with a photoshoot by photographer. Depth at the shores of a large, here it is better to those good swims.

  • A beautiful corner of urca. Extension to less than the famous Ipanema and Copacabana, but very nice.
