About Angra dos Reis
Paradisiacal Islands, Beaches and waterfalls of indescribable beauty
The rocking of the ocean in perfect harmony with the mountains and waterfalls, make of Angra dos Reis one of the most beautiful regions in the world. In this area, nature has created 8 bays, 365 islands, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and over 2000 beaches that artistically contrast the green tones of the mangroves.
After being discovered in the year1500 by Pedro Alvarez Cabral, the Portuguese crown sent three ships to Brazil to draw the map and tame the coastline of the new continent. The colonizers were impressed by the beauty of Guanabara Bay and amazed with what yet to come.
The ships, at the command of the Portuguese sails man Gonçalo Coelho entered Ilha Grand Bay on the 6th of January 1502. As it was King’s Day (from Portuguese Dia dos Reis), the island was baptized Angra dos Reis.
