  • The Eco Museum of the island of gunpowder has a large amount of fauna and flora of the region to meet, as well as a Museum and some towers, where is possible to climb and observe the city of Rio Grande. Excellent ride

  • Perfect view, amazing story. Requires greater attention from the public authorities. Impressive fauna where you can view all around the island through the observatories installed.

  • The site was a deposit of ammunition from the army and some civilians in the 19th century. Today has material to teach about the lagoa dos Patos and the connection with the sea, explaining the effect of the tides and everything. There are two viewpoints (one was banned) where it is possible to see São José do Norte, Rio Grande and Ilha dos Marinheiros. The game is by boat from the Museum of Oceanography and has a low cost. Works only in the afternoon (14hrs-6 other'clock) and does not open Mondays.

Where to stay in Rio Grande

The area around the old dock offers the greatest number and variety of accommodations in Rio Grande, with pastel-colored family-owned hotels among the most charming options. Modern stand-alone hotels become more frequent as you step away from the water and the historical dock, with prices varying between them depending on amenities and ocean views. Hostels and guesthouses provide the budget options in this popular part of town. If you're looking to keep the cost down, consider staying at one of the hotels in the largely residential area to the west.
