Forte de CopacabanaAt the end of Rio’s most famous beach rises a fortification from the early 20th century. Built atop a rock formation, the fort now evinces a triple attraction: its extraordinary placement, offering unparalleled views of Copacabana’s 2.5-mile sand-and-surf strip; the fort itself, with its historical exhibits and military museum circuit; and two cafés offering breakfast and all-day snacks along a leafy walkway stirred by tropical breezes. Perfect for a post-beach afternoon chill.
