Sunsets in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro not only have fantastic beaches and caipirinhas but also the most fabulous sunsets.. I tried to capture some of them:

Some of the best sunsets can be seen from Ipanema beach.

I think it is so great how cariocas (people from Rio) celebrate sunset – as soon as sun touches the horizon they applaud and cheer! Just so magic and wonderfull..

The place where Ipanema and Copacabana beaches connect is called Arpoador – bountiful sunset view guaranteed!

And if you go to Sugarloaf mountain (Pao de Acucar), visit it during sunset – it is the best! Sugarloaf mountain has panoramic vies of the city and the cable cars will take you all the way to the top. And then you will see the most breathtaking sunset of your life..


No two sunsets are the same  – so make sure you catch all of them. I will always remember these sunsets. Insanely beautiful!


It is a good idea to rest SUP (std up paddle) during sunset. Rental in Arpoador beach was jus 30reais per 30min.
