Island Nature / Park
Gipoia Island is a picturesque island where the smooth white sand melts into the crystal clear water, surrounded by the lush green forest. The water is so clear that you can actually see many of the fish and starfish without goggles. Accessible only by boat, this island is shielded from the winds, serving as a wonderful sanctuary and isolated getaway. Swim in the warm water with the fish or go snorkeling. A restaurant on the island serves fantastic seafood meals, and if you’re on boat, a floating bar will deliver your order directly to you.

  • Paradisiacal scenery, I guess I was in a movie. Worth the swim and a ride on the island. I don't even want to go. Without a doubt, my favorite island.

  • We know a piece of the island. Including a trail to the beach from the dentist (the most beautiful and famous of Angra). But the beaches are of advantage even. It's worth it! We had two small children and it was very good.

  • We did a tour with Mr. Eduardo Cove top the beaches of ilha da Gipóia, was simply sensational. With many options. Recommend the beach of arrows, but the island is phenomenal.

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.
