At the end of the famous Leblon beach, there is a scenic mountaintop viewpoint, the Leblon Viewpoint (in Portuguese, Mirante do Leblon), where you can contemplate a gorgeous bird’s-eye view of Ipanema and Leblon beaches together and listen to the waves hiiting the rocks right below. It is a great spot for a romance or a date.
Try climbing the viewpoint for the early morning to enjoy the sunrise. The belvedere is made of a huge deck with wooden planks supported on the rocks and garnished by a wooden fence. There are kiosks where you can drink coconut water or a cold beer. Above the Leblon there is another public place with a wider view of the beaches, called Parque Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers Park).
Address: Mirante do Leblon – Avenida Niemeyer – Leblon – Rio de Janeiro
