I love the restaurants there. There is a great pizzaria and 2 great seafood restaurants. It's worth going there. Park the car at the Barra Point Mall and take the boat there.

One of the best things we've seen in Rio, very quiet / peaceful neighbourhood. It's a 1 minute boat journey into this island for $1r per person. Nice to walk around the paths through the houses, various stalls, shops, small bars and restaurants often overlooking...More

Take the boat and forget the city. You'll be at a nice and bucolic place just a few minutes from the chaos. Restaurants, pleasant streets and the perfect day.

To reach the island you have to take a small boat. There you will find several restaurants and bars and a simple, beautiful fisher's village. Today there are also small buildings and middle and high class houses. Definetly worth the visit!

Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city! Take a boat ride to one of the many delicious restaurants overlooking the water for lunch or a romantic dinner. You'll feel like you're on a relaxing holiday.
