ANGRA DOS REIS

Angra dos Reis is a town in Rio de Janeiro state of Brazil. The town is a popular getaway for Rio residents, since there are plenty of nice beaches around. If you end up here, it is quite likely that you are on your way to the popular island Ilha Grande, since Angra is the main port to the island.


Apart from the town, Angra dos Reis is comprised many islands and "two thousand beaches" filled with natural beauty, legends and social events. To know well this part of the Fluminense Green Coast, one must travel by boat, being able to see the crystalline waters, and the mansions of the rich and famous, erected on private islands.


Among all of its islands, Ilha Grande stands out. Considered the paradise of adventurers, with its trails, waterfalls and deserted beaches, it played an important role in Brazil’s historical-cultural scenario for having housed a prison for almost 60 years.


In the past, Angra dos Reis was one of the most important ports of the Fluminense coast. Ships loaded with goods docked there from the other side of the world. Slave ships also arrived there with hundreds of slaves to supply forced labor in the coffee plantations of the region.
