Is Christ the Redeemer visible from Copacaban beach?

Hi, I'm a Canadian writer and am doing some research on Rio. I'm wondering if the Christ the Redeemer statue can be seen from Copacabana beach. Thanks in advance for your time!

Hey there,
Yes, you can see Christ the Redeemer from Copacabana Beach, but only if you are level with Rua Santa Clara, Rua Figueiredo de magalhaes or Rua Siqueira Campos, between  POSTO 3and 4, which run adjacent to Avenida Atlantica/ beach.. If you look down either of these roads, you will Jesus on the Corcovado..
Hope this helps
Scott

Thank you very much for your reply, Scott! Just to clarify, if you were in one of those areas you mentioned, and you went out in the water a little ways out, could you still see it? Or would you have to be closer to one of the roads you mentioned?

Sarahjade,
You can see it from the beach or the water, as long as you are level with one of those roads.. You can't see above the frontage along Avenida  Atlantica, so you have to look down the road, which gives you visibility.. word of advice, don't go to far out into the water- some serious rips..
Scott..

It depends from which point you are looking while in Copacabana beach.
It can be seen from Copacabana beach but not from any point.
