Gazing the ocena sunset at this place is a must in Arraial do Cabo. It's trully awe-inspiring and refreshing after a day at Prainhas do Pontal do Atalaia.

Totally worthy to go up the mountain to see the sunset at Atalaia! Beautiful scenery!!! From up there is possible to see all Arraial do Cabo and Cabo Frio main beach, without mention the endless Praia grande!

It's a bit of hike from town, so plan on 30 to 60 min to get there on foot, but well worth it for the view. It is possible to drive as well, though parking can be tricky.

If you ever come by Arraial do Cabo, definitely you should come by Mirante and pay a visit. I assure you'll see one of the bests sunsets you'll ever see in Brazil and maybe your life as well

Worth the drive out on the rough road and then the 1.5km walk out to the end of the point. Great view of the islands, the white sand beaches and the turquoise sea.

A high point in town with beautiful, magical views of the ocean. Its a great place for pictures. You should go at the end of the day, by this you get two views, by day and the spectacular sunset! A must see!
