  • The Park is fantastic because it has 44 km of beaches, and 18 ponds where migratory birds, and various other birds and large number of various species of fauna and flora of this region live with. The ambassadors of the Park offer their products and services to visitors, and the Chief of the Park allows them to be made on foot or motorized raids in 4 x 4 vehicle, duly authorised.

  • Huge reserve, with entries for Macaé, Carapebus and Quissamã has some structure only in Macaé.Com restinga vegetation is preserved and interesting enough to explore by walking trails of which only one seems to be demarcated. The information available on the Internet were obsolete and it is possible to enter the reservation any day, in macaé, and other entries there seems to be no control. We went on a weekday in low season and we haven't seen movement of visitors. Has no infrastructure for food and drink. A lot of beach, Sun and low vegetation and espinhenta.
