“Spectacular scenery from the bridge....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

'Metal' Bridge or as the name translates to - English Bridge is situated perfectly over one of many beautiful coastal and beach areas in this State of Brazil.The structure itself dates back to the 1900's when it was used primarily for passenger vessels.

Now when tourists like us leave for the day it is a meeting place for the young and what is a pier if you can't throw a line out to catch a fish - we saw fishermen on the rocks adjacent to the pier. Certain parts are off limits as it's unsafe but we were still able to walk out over the boardwalk to watch the sea green swell rolling onto the beach.

It's rather reminiscent of the old English seaboard piers but the views from this one are more spectacular.The scenery takes in the popular tourist beaches and high rises all along this coastal strip. More powerful than it appears, the Atlantic surged under the boardwalk cracks as we looked down before they hit the rocks. A couple of cafes are close by, a shop or two and it's a place to visit at day's end for an atmospheric sun set.

Enjoy your experience!

“Awesome!”

Nice place! Just relax, see the view of the city and sea! And feel the wind! Soooo beautiful! And then you can walk around in Praia de Iracema by bike, roller blade (wich you can rent there), or even on foot...

A wonderful place to watch and take pictures of the sunset. You can also rent a bike or walk at the nice and renewed side walk

“Beautiful past. Hopeful futire”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

This once was a great spot for appreciating the sunset. Now, after years of abandon, and a hopeful rebirth, starts slowly to be frequented by locals. The sunset is good, but some other piers were built and offer also nice views, in a safer way. Go if you have nothing better to do. But be aware late at night.
