Full description
Located in the Pedra Branca State Park, Pedra do Telégrafo (elevation of 350 meters) is at the top of Guaratiba Hill.

This 6-hour tour departs from the south of Rio de Janeiro or from Barra da Tijuca. Take a walk along the beach to the starting point of the trail. The ascent begins at Guaratiba Beach and it takes about an hour to reach the summit.

There are several viewpoints along the way, with the best known being a large, sharp rock called Pedra da Bigorna. From the summit, marvel at the views of the Restinga da Marambaia sand bank, the wild beaches of Rio, Pedra do Pontal and Grumari Beach. After the walk, relax on the beaches of Grumari and Prainha.
