Angra dos Reis

Angra dos Reis (Bay of Kings) has it all: colonial architecture, beautiful beaches, and clear green waters. Schooners, yachts, sailboats, and fishing skiffs drift among the bay's 365 islands, one for every day of the year. Indeed, Angra dos Reis' popularity lies in its strategic location near the islands. Some are deserted stretches of sand, others patches of Atlantic rain forest surrounded by emerald waters perfect for swimming or snorkeling.
