Excellent for walking in the mid afternoon, but not anywhere near as nice as Ipanema!

That´s one of the most amazing places in Rio de Janeiro to see the sunset. A must go.

If you can, wait till the end of the day and save the best for last: Arpoador is certainly got one of the most beautiful sunsets of Rio. The best place to watch it is on the rocks. It for free and it is wonderful.

Great views, magnificent landscape all around you. On a clear day, one can see all the way to the other side of Guanabara Bay.
The wave-beaten rocks invite the tourist to take dozens of beautiful pictures, specially if he/she is an experienced photoamateur, and incluldes the luscious landscape in the background.
Always full of people, from the poorest to the rich, enjoying the sun, the waves or jogging.

Wanna enjoy a romantic sunset together? So Arpoador Beach it your pick. Climb the Arpoador Rock and make yourself cozy. There's often someone playing soft music and sometimes it can get pretty crowded. So try to get a little earlier and be sure to get a nice spot to enjoy the show.
Once the sun is set, every claps and leaves. That's when you can really have it all for yourself.
