This is not a beach but scenic swimming and snorkeling off of a boat around very scenic islands. You can hire boats or join a group on a schooner to take you there. The water in summer is quite warm and it's a very enjoyable few hours. The snorkeling is decent, not great, but bathe scenery makes up for it.

A good place to swim, though there is no beach. You must go with a boat and you swim around. It´s in your way to Gipoia so you can visit both places the same day.

We rented a small boat, my husband, my 12yo son and I, with fisherman in downtotwn Angra. The guy was very nice and took us around for about 5 hours. We snorkeled in Botinas Island, lots of small fish the yellow and black striped ones, some colorful ones. The water was clear enough....overall it was a very enjoyable day!

This pace is in the middle of the ocean and has millions of fishes. You can see many types of fishes and ocean life just using your snorkeling gear. The water is very shalow and the ocean was pretty calm while we were there, so it is really cool even for beginners to explore it. Strongly recommended stop for your boat trip while in Angra dos Reis bay.

Duas pequenas ilhas maravilhosas. O nome bonitas vem de sua forma que lembra pequenas botas. As ilhas são rochosas e excelente para mergulho com snorkel. A água é cristalina e existe uma farta vida marinha.
Two small and wonderful islands. The name "boots" comes from its boot-shaped. The little rocky islands are great places for snorkeling. The water is crystal clear and there is an abundant marine life. Access is only by boat. There are tours from the town of Angra dos Reis and the Village of Abraham in Ilha Grande.
