What to Expect
We will begin our tour in Mirante do Roncador, where we will walk to a trail that will take us to the Swimming Pool of the Secret. After resting in this true paradise, we will walk to "Prainha", voted by TripAdvisor one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in Brazil.

I will pick you up and drive to Rio de Janeiro's West Zone, where you'll see some of the most beautiful beaches in the city. We will park around the viewpoint before Prainha Beach, and hike for about 30 minutes to access the secret beach, Praia do Secreto. We will chill in this paradise :) We will be around the White Stone State Park, we will hike around and access some really special viewpoints and see the wild beaches of Rio de Janeiro.
