Let me run through some transportation details:
You can Goolge your way to get instructions to drive yourself to the beach. It is not complicated. Tip: Once you pass through the tunnel between Icaraí and
São Francisco and turn left, following the traffic, you are home free. Basically follow the traffic for another 40 minutes along the main drag. It will plop you onto Itaipú beach.
If you take a bus – you can either get to the Castello bus terminal in Rio (not the rodoviaria) and then take the Pendotiba 770 Itaipu bus all the way to the beach (probably 70 minutes or so on the bus – traffic will be light), or you can take any bus from your area to the terminal in Niterói (not the rodoviaria) and then transfer to the Pendotiba 38 Itaipu bus which will also terminate at the beach. (Do not take the 38A bus). In Niterói, you enter buses through the rear entrance.
|These friends of mine will be at Itacuatiara Beach. LOL!|
