Praia do Arpoador
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
NileGuide Expert tip:
Early birds (or very late night owls) can catch dramatic sunrises here too, and the nearby Arpoador Inn is a great base for anyone looking to spend time in the area
The point at which Ipanema and Copacabana meet, known as Arpoador, is a prime spot for catching stunning sunsets over Rio de Janeiro.
A giant rock juts out from the sands of Arpoador beach into the crashing waves of the Atlantic, providing spectacular views over the beaches of the Zona Sul and beyond. For the ultimate romantic Rio experience, head here just before sundown with a bottle of wine and some picnic goodies. and watch the colors of the sky change dramatically before your eyes. Don't forget the camera.
