Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Rio de Janeiro / Mirante da Prainha
Sandwiched between the mountains, Mirante da Prainha offers a tranquil, clean, and isolated escape from Rio's bustle. Considered the best surf beach in Rio, the crescent-shaped stretch is flanked by rocks and lofty cliffs; as a result, waves up to 3 m (9.8 ft) high come in fast with multiple breaks, suitable for experienced surfers. Look for the regular Surf Bus in Rio if you don't have a car to get here. You may see some cameras on site at this favorite shooting location for television.

But I found a beautiful place, only nature around, total peace! Great for relaxing and enjoying the view. I leave the tip to take what to eat on my own because there is not much option than to buy.
Só sentindo a vibe pessoalmente e melhor fora dos finais de semana onde o acesso pode ser fechado se carros demais more »Just feeling the vibe personally and better off weekends where access can be closed if too many cars
Beautifully located, overlooking the ocean waves hitting the rocks, tables under the shade of tree leaves made shacks. Delicious fresh fish grilled in banana trees leaves. Magnificent landscape!!
Lovely view, great fish experience
