Piratininga, and specially Prainha, are great beaches to visit in Niteroi...However, you should try to avoid weekends because they are very crowded...Prainha is unique, with small little rock islands nearby, and a beautiful view of Copacabana!

Not much to do since the water is very dirty, but a nice walk. Very close to the MAC museum, good reference spot to ask the bus to stopç at on your way there.
