  • I live on the island First, that is, since I was a kid, and I'm conscious of the privilege of living in a place like this, with so much tranquillity amidst the chaos of the big city to your surroundings.

  • Everything there is amazing, great restaurants in an environment of relaxation and security. Not to mention that it is in the heart of barra da tijuca. Pity the pond needs better deal

  • Yummy ride to meet the island of Gigóia. We left the car at the Mall Point Bar. Right there close, behind the Unimed, is the output of the ferries. You get one of these small boats to cross to the island. Soon arriving, is a place that even remotely resembles the urban centers. The place is very peaceful and bucolic. You can stroll through the streets, enjoy the delicious restaurants and still make a tour of the Islands (some boats do this tour). Downside is the pollution of water that won't let us forget what the man's been doing with the nature. Other than that, it is worth knowing! Ever want to go back to watch the sunset.

  • Amazing. Remarkable atmosphere. Lovely people. ****
  • The people live decades in Rio and still learns new things. At the time of the Jardim Oceânico has a small Venice carioca (with touches of Paquetá), an archipelago, whose main island is Gigoia, where the transportation is done by boat. The Islands have no traffic nor robbers. Have some bucolic lanes, some coloridinhas houses in the most diverse formats (there's no standardization), a chapel, a modest trades, some fresh fish restaurants to famous, some graffiti and cats, and you go from one place to another you have to take a boat type Venice (saved the appropriate proportions). The ships circulate all the time (at least during the day). You get deep into the island and all of a sudden will stop at a dead end, a pier. Nice to have a Google Maps by hand.

  • Very charming, has several interesting restaurants and bars. Downside ... the water pollution. CEDAE could be more present to inspect the sewer spill in natura of the entire island.

  • Beautiful and cozy, great Italian food, fine wines and extremely easy to reach using the subway, getting off at the last station of the bar, Ocean Garden, which is faced with the boats that lead up to the restaurant on the island. Recommend.

  • I was raised on this island. Is still a wonderful place to visit, it's great boating and there are many dining options, as well as the proximity to the subway. But I would highlight the problems, the site is overcrowded, several houses badly finished made to rent, sprouting on the ground, cats sewer, garbage piled up in the alleys and increasing presence of the militia. So, for the tourist worth, however to live be careful, gigoia island is in the process of slum.
