The Guanabara Bay extends for about 31 kilometres and includes the iconic peak of the Pão de Açúcar or the Sugar Loaf. The tourists can enjoy viewing prominent Rio attractions like the Copacabana Beach, the statue of Christ the Redeemer and also various beaches of the Niteroi. You will also pass the scenic neighbourhoods of Botafogo, Urca and Flamengo. Also, as additional attractions, you can explore Fort Sao Joao, Flagstone Island, Santa Cruz Fortress and the Rio-Niteroi Bridge on your way.

The bay also has a very important and diversified ecosystem, however in the recent years due to various reasons it is rapidly getting affected.
