“The picture you see is not Paqueta...”

Ilha de Paqueta Beach
Reviewed 3 April 2017

Paqueta is a beautiful little island with a fantastic beach, clear water and a great place to anchor a boat.
The picture shown here is NOT Paqueta Island in Angra dos Reis. There is another Paqueta Island near the city of Rio, I believe this picture could be from there.

Thank Eduardo M

This island is just so beautiful. You can walk all around the island in the same day arriving early in the morning and leaving around 5pm. People are so nice. The only ashamed thing, and I'm really sad of it, is that the water is full of wastes coming from Rio.
If you want to feed yourself, go to the conservatory restaurant. The house is beautiful, the food is great but don't be in a rush hahah

The old ferries that trundle back and forth from Rio to Ilha Paquetá fill up quickly, especially on weekends. Standing room only, with all windows open to let in the warm summer breeze for the seventy minute crossing. At the dock in Paquetá, 2000 happy day trippers disembark and head for the beaches on the other side of the island. They walk, ride in horse drawn carriages, or take one of the electric bicycle taxis for an hour long tour of this idyllic island deep in Guanabara Bay. Drivers are experienced tour guides and will fill you in on Indio history, census figures, how garbage is taken away, where fresh water and electricity come from and where the best view points are to take in the quite dramatic setting for this beautiful island. All in Portuguese of course, as there are very few tourists that take the time to spend a day here. Have lunch, rent a swan, swim if you dare, cool off with a cerveja and hydrate with plenty of water. Round trip is only R$9.
