Located in Flamengo Park, between Rio's South Zone and city centre, Marina da Glória will host the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic sailing competitions.
Less than one kilometre from Santos Dumont Airport, the marina offers visitors a privileged view of Sugarloaf Mountain, one of the city's most famous picture-postcards.
Marina da Glória
On the shores of Guanabara Bay, Marina da Glória benefits from wind and sea conditions favourable to the practice of sailing, as well as breathtaking views. From the waters of the bay, new views of this beautiful city are revealed - it is possible to see Corcovado Mountain, on top of which sits the Christ statue, as well as the iconic Pedra da Gávea.
In addition to nautical services, the site also offers space for events, fairs and festivals. On Sundays and holidays, the roads alongside Flamengo Park are closed to traffic and the region becomes a popular outdoor sports and leisure area for cariocas and tourists.
