Paquetá Island is a hidden gem that offers a unique experience for those looking for a tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Rio de Janeiro. The island is only accessible by ferry and takes around one hour to reach from the city. Upon arrival, visitors are greeted by a serene atmosphere, with no cars or tall buildings in sight. The island's quaint streets are still made of clay and lined with colorful houses, giving it a nostalgic charm.
To fully appreciate the island's beauty and attractions, visitors can rent bicycles or electric carts, which are the only modes of transportation available. Alternatively, a leisurely stroll on foot is also a popular option, as the island is small, covering only 1.2 km² (0.5 sq mi).
For those who want to extend their stay, the House of Art provides a unique and cozy experience. The building's Gaudi-like architecture features large windows that offer breathtaking views of the Guanabara Bay and the stunning "fingers of God" rock formation in Teresopolis. The rooms are equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, including modern amenities and a tranquil atmosphere that guarantees a peaceful night's sleep.
Watching the sunrise or sunset from the comfort of your room or one of the tiny beaches nearby is a must-do activity that will leave you mesmerized.
