  • The Park, a timely idea to transform the area in reserve, allowed the protection of a sensitive area, the sandbank, which was being used for logging, cattle ranching and pineapple plantations. A tour allows you to see what remained of the canal Macae-fields, vegetation of restinga, something of the fauna. Without tourism infrastructure, but is worth knowing, walk and admire this ecological site.

  • The place is beautiful but very desert, but if they are accompanied with no problem. Be sure to visit the lagoon.

  • I was surprised by the beauty of this park, despite being well abandoned. The entrance to the Park in Macaé has a vigilant and to get there, we pass in the middle of a needy community. The access road is pretty bad with pockmarked and unpaved. Do not be alarmed because the path is ugly, but the final destination is worth it. After passing through the entrance, a few more meters ahead the asphalt ends where there is an abandoned building (perhaps it would be a visitors center). After arriving at this point there is a warm water pond in tom Brown due to rich vegetation. The right side is a sea raging well, with strong waves and coarse sand. The man is not to get into this area of sea, there is pretty bad on the internet historical. We enjoyed a lot the pond, wet your feet in the sea and contemplate the coastal green expanse that stretches from Macae to Quissamã.
