This place is a sand bank in the middle of the ocean. Really cool place for snorkeling, or just enjoying the water in the middle of the ocean. Don't forget to bring your own snacks because there is no food or drinks for sale in there.

Par-a-dice....... Lovey beach, warm, clear sea, hot, hot, hot. Par a dice. Visited on a schooner (escuna) perfect, as is Angra Dos Reis.

This is the first stop of the boats that go around Angra dos Reis and this is the best spot to swim.The water is calm and warm.

Beautiful island with white beach and crystal clear water, but packed with tourists in the high season. Seek away from the big boats and to the farther side of the island.
