This view point is visible from the western beach "Praia Grande" in Arraial do Cabo and takes about 30 min to get to (find it on google maps). It provides a great view of the beach below and a view of the rocky cliffs to the south and east. Sunset was over the ocean the day I was there (in early May). Only 5 people encountered on the trail and only 2 at the top. No problem taking photos without people in them! General notes below: NOTES 1. Arraial do Cabo has several main beaches on various sides of the peninsula. We stayed at "Praia Grande", the beach on the western side of the peninsula and thought it the best of them. Nice beach, hotel and restaurant options. 2. Praia Grande is a 15 min hike from the central bus station. Or a 5 min taxi ride. 3. We arranged for transport to Arrial do Cabo at our hotel in Rio. It's about a 3 hour bus ride from Rio (Ipanema). 4. Once in Arraial do Cabo we arranged transport back to Rio's "Rio Novo" bus station. From there it's a 15 min taxi or UBER ride to GIG airport. There are direct buses from Arraial do Cabo to GIG, but only during high season (not in May)…

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!
