Searching for the best view of Rio de Janeiro? Look no further!

While Rio is home to an unrivalled number of unbelievable views, one oft-overlooked location trumps them all; the city of Niteroi from across the bay.


With such a wealth of amazing things to do and see in Rio de Janeiro, it is perhaps unsurprising that her sister city is mostly ignored by tourists looking to enjoy the beaches and nightlife on offer.

Across Guanabara Bay, it is Niteroi however that has the ultimate view of Rio.

From here Copacabana curves away in the distance while Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer are framed against the beautiful blue sky. The green of the mountains coupled with the fluffy white clouds above, only adds to the mosaic of colours that make Rio such a delight to visit.

Picture perfect

The sunsets are incredible

As the sun sets, a whole new palette of shades comes into play as the hills turn to purple silhouettes against the horizon and small dots of light frame the city against the darkness.
