A stunning boat ride and an awesome view at the top. The hike takes around an hour on a steep trail. Bring shoes! The little bay is around 7km long and it resembles a Nordic fjord given he mountains around. Great!

The trail for Pão de Açúcar peak (not those of Rio de Janeiro) is moderate and takes circa 45 min to reach the summit. Nice view of the bay.

This place has one of the best views I've seen in Brazil. To go there, you should get a car or a bus to the village of Paraty-Mirim and from there hire a boat to the Mamangua Bay (Saco do Mamangua). Ask for the boat...More

Found this on trip advisor. Wanted to do it but didn't want to pay $75 to do it on a tour. It's perfectly possible alone. I found another guy from my hostel who wanted to go (the more, the cheaper). Took the bus from Paraty...More
