Sugar Loaf, Copacabana beach and Vermelha beach
Leave your hotel this afternoon to visit Sugar Loaf Mountain. The Sugar Loaf, known world over as Rio’s picture-postcard site is a must to visit. . Sugar Loaf is reached on a two-stage cable car ride. This cable car takes up to 65 persons per trip on a 3 minute ride, each stage. The first stage, Morro da Urca, barely 660 feet high, has a restaurant, amphitheater, a helipoint for scenic rides and a privileged view of the Yacht Club and Botafogo Bay. The second stage takes one up to the Sugar Loaf, thus named because of the loaves of sugar that were commonly used by the Portuguese at the time of the discovery of the city. The all-encompassing view of this privileged 1200 feet high lookout is unrivaled. This is the only site where one can enjoy a full view of Copacabana beach.
