  • beautiful site, I saw only the beach, because it belongs to the army, the beach is wonderful because it's clean waters, said that until an alligator was spotted swimming

  • A different ride for those who are in the region. The ride is fast but it's worth it. The view is great and the opportunity to meet some of the brazilian history. A pity that during the ride is not made the stop on the remaining strong.

  • The view that has the top of the Fort is a must. The facilities are also super interesting. Learning very good and wonderful pictures. The guide was clear in your explanations. Problems: after the ride on the Route of the Sun, he's super busy. The staff of the army organizes the queue for the visit. People stop double-parked with fear of losing the place. The visitors need to organize to prevent injustices. A boy came up with the idea of distributing a piece of paper to organize who arrived first, that helped a lot because the army personnel let alone who was with the paper. It takes a lot to make the registration of cars and drivers. It took more than half an hour to write down the license plate, yasir_phool25, cnh and receive the money. Fair charging R $5.00 per adult. Children and elderly are exempt. There is the possibility to go with a van, but I have not used the service and I don't know how it works. The ride but I suggest you arrive 1 hour before. How are just 12 cars (extended until 15) turns into a crazy!!!!

  • Great historical tour, although some parts are poorly preserved. The view of Fort Duque de Caxias is very beautiful! It is worth visiting.

Where to stay in Praia Grande

Between Rodovia do Imigrantes and the sea, you'll find the vast majority of Praia Grande's accommodations, putting you near the epicenter of activity--the stretch of sand that borders the Atlantic. Palatial beachside hotels with swimming pools and private beaches line Avenida Presidente Castelo Branco, the main seaside strip. A few simpler budget options also exist along this main drag, and prices tend to reduce markedly the farther you get from the sea and sand.
