Beaches · Islands · Bodies of Water
Consisting of an island for every day of the year, the municipality of Angra dos Reis has incredible tourism potential because it's surrounded by rugged natural scenery. The town itself has been overwhelmed by industrialization--with an oil terminal and a large port dominating its once-spectacular coastline, along with two nearby nuclear power plants. Head a few kilometers out of town to see the coast as it once was, with pristine waters and flourishing tropical vegetation. There's plenty to enjoy on the 365 islands, some of which are owned by wealthy celebrities and businesspeople.
