Porto Marina 1 (Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro (state))

Things to do in Rio de Janeiro (state)

Who has not heard of the famous Sugarloaf Mountain; the great rock, nearly 400 meters high, reachable by a cable car? Who is not familiar with the 34-meter high statue of Christ the Redeemer? (One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, but the only one declared World Heritage Site) Both attractions are located on the Atlantic coast of Brazil, in the State of Rio de Janeiro, so you can enjoy their stateliness as you approach with your boat.

Other coastal cities are Niterói, in the Guanabara Bay, the ancient capital (attached to the city of Rio by Rio-Niterói Bridge) with its splendid beaches and close to Museum of Contemporary Art. Navigating towards east you will run into Costa do Sol, with three large lakes (Saquarema, Marica and Araruama) separated with the fine sands of the Atlantic.

If we continue navigating along the coast, we’ll reach Cabo Frio, Arraial do Cabo and Buzios, the latter with 20 internationally renowned beaches (and where a wide variety of water sports are performed; from surfing to snorkeling). In Paraty and Angra dos Reis, besides beaches, the captain will come across some beautiful islands, packed with sheltered bays and places to anchor. The climate is hot and humid, even though in winter the temperature does slightly lower. The average temperature in summer is 20 degrees Celsius and a large amount of rainfall occurs.

If we head west we will find Costa Verde, an endless succession of beaches, located amongst beautiful vegetation, until reaching Angra Dos Reis, an archipelago known for having a different island for every day of the year (so, 365 in total). Ilha Grande deserves special attention, with its charming fishing villages. The climate is tropical; water temperature varies between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius and enjoys 180 cloudless days a year (January is the rainiest month). In Ilha Grande cars are not allowed so the best way to experience its beautiful beaches is by sailing (Dois Rios, Aventureiro or Parnaioca) unless you want to rent a bike.
