ARPOADOR RIO DE JANEIRO

At the vertix, where the coasts of Copacabana and Ipanema meet, we find two beaches, a particular rock formation, and a pretty park.

The beaches are called “Praia do Diabo” (Do Diabo Beach), and “Praia do Arpoador” (Arpoador Beach), the rock is called “Pedra do Arpoador” (Arpoador Rock) , and the Park “Parque Garota de Ipanema” (Girl from Ipanema Park).

Arpoador Stone, Rio de Janeiro, is a rock formation that comes out directly from the Atlantic Ocean.

Whale hunting with harpoons was very common at this area. It was done some time ago by the indians, and continued by the Portuguese.

From this historical fact derives the name “Pedra do Arpoador”, in english (harpooner’s rock, Rio de Janeiro).
