Everybody knows that Rio de Janeiro is "the" wonderful city. But few people have taken their time to see it from the sea, where the view it's even more prestigious. So, we offer you: how about a different experience, sailing to nearby islands, diving and enjoying the sunset seen from the sea?
Leaving Rio, we also have many destination options: Guanabara Bay, Praia Vermelha, Archipelago of Cagarras, Itaipú, Ilha Rasa, Paquetá, and others. We're also offering crossings to Ilha Grande, Paraty or Angra dos Reis.
Sail Yacht Sangha, 35 ft
The Brazilian coast has almost 7,400 km of natural beauties and more than 2000 beaches. Among so many of nature's wonders, just west from Rio de Janeiro lies the Green Coast, where the mountainous banks of flowering trees plunge into a blue-green sea. The coastline here presents visitors with an ever-changing panorama of bays, islands, peaks, and waterfalls.
Also in this landscape, the harbor of Paraty, which dates back to seventeenth-century is famous for having both well-preserved historic center and the legendary beauty of the surrounding beaches.
Not far from here, ideal for lovers of beach adventures, is Ilha Grande, which is a vast island without vehicular traffic and with few settlements to disturb its natural splendor. Surprisingly, this paradise is easily accessible for those who are in São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro, taking 5h and 4h20 drives, respectively.
Paraty is a 4 hour and 20 minutes drive from Rio de Janeiro. The driveway is in good conditions but you might have to face some traffic issues due to crossing several urban areas on the way, there are no tolls. The road to Paraty is very beautiful, especially going through Itaguaí. The best transfer options are renting a car or a private van (contact us for further info).
