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.

    Are two small islands located very close to the coast, the landing is not possible. The ships are anchored near the snorkeling is possible in incredibly clear waters. Worth the visit. There are several operators in Angra that make the ride.

    Beauty is not so much of the Islands but the whole sea, Islands, blue sky ... Now if you can visit this site on a sunny day is great! the color and transparency of sea water are beautiful, the shoals of fish, take a swim in these waters is very pleasurable.

    Very cool, except I was almost hit by a boat while he was in the water, but otherwise everything very good. So a lot of craft, be careful.

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.
