    Is a former village-paço with church and a couple of houses-located between the towns of Angra dos Reis and Paraty. I visited three hostels, where I tried to stay, but they were all closed. Warned me that their owners normally travel this time of year. This was on a Wednesday, beginning of August.

    I spent my holiday of adolescence on this beach. Still very good: simple and beautiful. Great off-season.

    The historic centre of the village is not so extensive as to Paraty, but it's worth a visit to see some houses from the colonial period, well preserved, as well as your church on the seafront. Bathing beach life is very beautiful and Nice.

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.
