Cagarras Islands Tours

Five islands make up this remote archipelago that attracts outdoor enthusiasts, water sport adventurists, and nature-lovers alike. At Ilha Cagarra, Ilha de Palmas, Ilha Comprida, Ilha Filhote, and Ilha Grande, visitors will find plenty of birds and marine life surrounding this protected group of islands, including dolphins, boobies, frigate, and seagulls. Steep rock faces and rugged trails offer up the perfect hiking terrain.

The longest island, Ilha Comprida, ranks high among stops on boat tours, since its pristine waters are ripe with tropical fish and known for ideal diving conditions, plus easy access to underwater shipwrecks.

Practical Info

The islands are located about three miles (five km) off of Ipanema Beach. There is no public transportation to the archipelago, so an organized tour from Rio de Janeiro is your best bet.
