Arpoador Apartments

Arpoador Apartments

Arpoador (literally, the harpoon thrower) is a famous district situated on the southern zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro, in a small peninsula that stretches between Ipanema and Copacabana.

 

Rio Luxury Rent has selected for you the most luxurious, comfortable and spacious Arpoador apartments.

Arpoador is mostly known for being one of the best metropolitan surf spots in Rio de Janeiro. The rock outcropping creates stable left breakers up to 7–10 feet high (wave face measure, as Brazilians do). Due to its metropolitan location, crowds are ferocious and competitive. Due to the fact that waves start to break against the rock on a good day, and that a strong riptide along the promontory creates a quick re-entry, the take-off point is very small and only locals (or visiting professional-level surfers) have a shot at it. However, if you are really keen on surf, this is surely a not to be missed spot.

During some time around midsummer, generally in July, it is possible to see the sun setting over the sea from Arpoador, a rare event if you consider that the Brazilian coast is mostly eastward-facing. In these occasions crowds gather around the place and cheer when the sun disappears.
