  • Holiday Attractions, Beaches, Tours and Excursions: "Official ferries leave for Ilha Grande once a day from the seaside town of Angra dos Reis, but it's faster to get a fishing boat from nearby Conceicao de Jacarei, which can be reached by coach or group transfer from Rio."
  • Romantic Things to Do, Outdoor Activities: "The main points of interest along the Costa Verde are Mangaratiba, Angra dos Reis and Ilha Grande. Boats depart from Angra dos Reis each afternoon and take around two hours. Should you miss the official ferry, there are scores of fishing boats on hand to transport you to your island paradise."
  • Best for Holiday Attractions Because: For a little respite from the city swelter during holiday high season, head to the beaches along the beautiful Costa Verde.

  • Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: A side trip to Ilha Grande or Paraty will allow couples to relax in paradisaical surrounds .
  • Best for Outdoor Activities Because: Boat rides along the beautiful Costa Verde - Green Coast - allow for diving, snorkelling and swimming.
  • Best for Tours and Excursions Because: The Costa Verde is home to one of Rio´s most beautiful islands - Ilha Grande, and the perfectly-preserved colonial town of Paraty.
