The views from the summit of the 396m high Sugarloaf are dazzling. From high up you can see the arc of the whole sandy beach of Capacabana, the beaches or Botafogo, Flamengo and Gloria, the office towers of Centro and a great view of the statue of Christ the Redeemer. It's common sense but try and go on a clear day but also go at sunset.
