The beauty of Rio de Janeiro beaches has won over German tourists who arrive in Brazil. A survey recently released by travel portal TripAdvisor shows that in the German tourists’ opinion, among the 10 best beaches in the country, five are located in the state. The ranking, led by Baia do Sancho, in Fernando de Noronha (PE), features Pontal do Atalaia (2), Farol (3) and Forno (4) beaches, in Arraial do Cabo; Lopes Mendes (6), in Ilha Grande; and Arpoador (7), in the capital.

The list was developed based on ratings posted by German tourists on the website. Overall, 25 beaches across the country were listed. While mentioning the beauty of the beaches, the website highlights the beauty of the clear waters of Arraial do Cabo, municipality located in Região dos Lagos, 165 kilometers from the capital, and labels Lopes Mendes – 100 kilometers – as the “beach of dreams”. Located in the South zone of Rio, Arpoador is highlighted for the stunning sunset.

According to Embratur, government company that fosters tourism, the German tourist visiting Brazil mostly looks for the Sun and Beach; Culture; and Ecotourism and Adventure segments.
