Niterói is a sort of (much smaller) twin to the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro, the second largest in this giant South American country.  It sits across the great Guanabara Bay from the larger city, a sort of Oakland to the San Francisco of Rio.  The area is sometimes used to define the larger area on the east side of its bay, only part of which is in the Niterói city limits.  In this drone video by Digital Peace, you'll get a nice aerial view of the beaches on the Niterói side of the great bay, north and east of central Rio.
