It is a meeting place and especially for sports events. There are countless groups of people playing football, volleyball and the popular sport developed by the locals, foot-volley. At the very beginning of the beach, you will find the Arpoador Rock, a popular surf spot and one of the best places to admire one of Rio de Janeiro's magical sunsets.
