Discover Ilha Grande and Angra dos Reis bay Brazil

Angra dos Reis bay, some 106 mi south of Rio, shelters 365 islands! It is a magical place dotted with jungle-covered mountains, and is perfect for great hikes as well as underwater diving, which provides the opportunity to admire the wrecks of sunken galleons and pirate ships as well as swim with sea turtles. The many pink granite rocks in the area make this part of Brazil reminiscent of the Seychelles. Ilha Grande, a treasure island fit for any adventure novel, is the star attraction of the bay. There are no roads or cars in this pristine paradise, and just a few pousadas. The island is covered in tropical rainforest inhabited by monkeys, humming birds and other exotic animals, and reaches heights of nearly 3300 ft! The restaurants and pousadas are concentrated in Vila do Abraao, the island's sole 'village', where schooners from Angra dos Rei and Mangaratiba drop anchor. You are sure to feel a million miles from home as you stroll through the sandy streets! Some other hotels are in more secluded spots on the island, where they can only be reached by water, either in a boat or canoe. The beaches of Lopes Mendes and Cachadaço are considered some of the most beautiful in Brazil.
