Guanabara Bay is one of the three natural harbors in the world with its narrow abdomen and calm waves. At high altitude, this bay is really beautiful. When I went, it was evening. Everything was quiet. It showed the blue sky of the sea and the quietness of the harbour.
The Atlantic Gulf, in southeastern Brazil, Rio de Janeiro lies on its southwest coast and Niteroi on its Southeast coast. Found in 1502, originally known as the Gulf of Rio de Janeiro. It is about 31 kilometers (19 miles) long and 29 kilometers (18 miles) wide. The entrance is about 1.61 kilometers (1 mile) wide. Papagaio Peak and Santa Cruz are on the East and Sugar Loaf Mountain and Sao Joao are on the west. Fort Laje Island at the mouth of the Bay was the temporary residence of Huguenots in 1555. The Bay is dotted with several islands, including Villegagnon, Governador and Cobras Island, with defences, naval warehouses, hospitals and dry docks. From just north of Rio de Janeiro's central point, a bridge crosses the Bay and connects to Nitroy.
It's beautiful to open this bay at a high altitude. When I went, it was noon. Everything was quiet. It showed the blue sky of the sea and the silence of the harbour. Beautiful, once one of the most beautiful beaches in the southeastern direction of Rio, but now threatened by pollution.
It's a beautiful bay with lots of yachts and blue water. It's beautiful to see from high!
Beautiful bay, looking down on Mount Jesus is very beautiful, Rio must climb to see!
The reason why Rio de Janeiro has developed into an international metropolis like today, Brazil's most promising city, is precisely because the colonists found this excellent port. It can be said that Rio de Janeiro is the city brought by this port. It's a bay in itself, but if you know its historical significance, it will seem more emotional.
