he Pedra do Telegrafo stone is a 354 meters high block of rock located inside the borders of Pedra Branca State Park, in the Praias Selvagens beaches sector, on top of a hill called Morro de Guaratiba. The name comes from the Portuguese word telegrafo that means telegraph. That’s because a military communication station was based there during World War II.

To the other side it’s possible to see the unique Restinga do Marambaia and its long sand beach, one of the longest beaches on our coast.

Our guide was awesome. I highly recommend at minimum tennis shoes, water, snack, insect repellent. The view is gorgeous. We saw monkeys along the way.
