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.

  • Very interesting this beach because it's located in a neighborhood with no way out, i.e. practically has an input and output over there and the beach is well frequented.

  • The quiet beach, the bad thing is that there were a lot of people when we went, but is enjoyed equally, the quiet sea without waves, also you can rent deck chairs or chairs for sunbathing. There are public toilets nearby.

  • I did a trail next to the sugar loaf to climb for free why pay almost course kkkk R $100,00 to climb is a lack of respect to a Brazilian citizen. but let's put aside the criticism and let's talk about the good stuff. Both the ascent and descent is tiring to have to have a good preparation and I am careful what you take to get to the entrance you are barred by policemen who don't let you come in with some belongings including water kkkkk logico if not you into buying her expensive and luxurious restaurants inside on top of the first stone of the pao. worth the wearisome trail but the view is amazing worth the sacrifice
