Niteroi

Niteroi
Niteroi is a large city with a population rapidly approaching half a million people and boasts many wonderful beaches and coastal attractions, together with a number of historical fortresses.
Itacoatiara Beach makes for a deserved day trip and ranks very highly, being famed for its exceptional surfing conditions and views of Rio. Those visiting this city are also strongly advised to check out the esteemed Niteroi Museum of Contemporary Art, which features memorable modern architecture and appears rather like a hovering flying saucer. Thrill seekers regularly come to Prainha Beach to try their hand at cliff diving from the neighbouring Whale Rock.
