  Itapu Beach - NITEROI by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

It has a big importance for the city of Niteroi because in the sand we can find many bones of ancient animals, I mean, fossils are found there and it gives a lot of work for our archiologists to find out more about our own past; but you can also go there and see the surroundings which are breathtaking, the beautiful hills and the beach of Itaipu is there for you to spend the whole day.

Some crystals can be found in the sand as well!

It is a very itneresting and completely unknown spot to explore!
