Amazing view and a good place to take good pictures. The hike to get there is not very hard, but you need to walk uphill for maybe 15-20 minutes if i remember correct. Definitely worth the walk to see this stunning view.

It's hard to get there by public transportation. but they do have a parking lot (small). Do go on weekends, since its (supposedly) safer. its about 40min walk (easy-regular). you don't need to climb on any rocks like the Pedra da Gavea (hard-super tiring).

Totally overrated but you have to go there when in Rio. Nothing special - just a crowded beach! You can rent bicycles if you fancy a ride on the promenade.

It is a half an hour ride and you can easily get a taxi both at the airport and at your hotel.

Not Petra, but Pedra+Rock Pedra Bonita means Beautiful Rock, the name of one of the magnificent granite formations in this area. Near it ,there a well known hang glider launching pad.
