South of the city of Rio is one of Brazil's most beautiful seaside destinations: Angra dos Reis. Because of its gorgeous beaches, outstanding bayside location and breathtaking environs, Angra has become a magnet for tourism – not only statewide but also on a national and even international scale. With more than 360 islands and 2,000 white sandy beaches bordered by primary lush sub-tropical Atlantic Forest, Angra dos Reis offers great coastal and boating experiences. On this activity, you will board a traditional Brazilian schooner to explore the islands and countless beaches, with stops for swimming and diving and a delicious buffet lunch. Within the municipality are over 300 islands, many of them owned by national and international celebrities, dominated by Ilha Grande (Big Island). The world-renowned, pioneering Brazilian plastic surgeon and philanthropist, the late Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, notably owned one of the most beautiful islands in this hauntingly lovely bay.
