Botinas Island, Angra Dos Reis

Two tiny, rocky desert islands, Botinas Island are named after the Portuguese for boot, because they resemble the footwear in shape. The crystal clear waters are teeming with marine life, from fish of all sizes, to sting rays and turtles. The fish are almost fearless, so you can get right up close whilst snorkeling or diving.

  • We've been in Angra dos Reis in November 2017 and rented a boat to visit the islands of the Bay. We were delighted with all of them, but the one that caught my attention were the Islands footwear. Are two small twin Islands, ideal for diving. Transparent waters full of marine wealth.

Where to stay in Angra Dos Reis

While there are plenty of accommodations in Angra dos Reis itself, the industrialized township serves best as a stopover point for travel, rather than a destination in itself. Look for lodging a few kilometers outside of town, where you'll find any number of laid-back beach resorts in pristine settings. The coast just north of town offers hotels and dive resorts, while the seafront to the south brims with beach resorts and eco lodges. You can also stay on Ilha Grande, just a short ferry ride from the main township, to immerse yourself in Brazilian island life.
