Most recently famed for hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics, Brazil has become a hot spot for world-class yachting. One of the most popular destinations is Angra dos Reis, Bay of Kings. This exquisite bay, positioned only 60 miles from Rio de Janeiro, is host to 365 islands or as many say, “there is an island for each day of the year”. The water is tranquil and the weather is temperate due to being sheltered by Ilha Grande, Large Island. As an ideal winter location, the warmest time of year in Brazil is October to April. With so many islands, there are an endless number of beaches to lounge or walk along. And don’t be afraid to get into the water, at a constant temperature in the mid-70s you will feel relaxed and refreshed in no time. With rainforests and nature preserves all around you, basking in waterfalls, seeing monkey’s swing from tree to tree, diving in exotic waters, and discovering remote villages, are all on the agenda. Once the sun sets, the festival begins on board the unique floating restaurants Barco Bar or Jango’s. Indulge on the local cocktail, Caipirinha made from fermented sugar cane. Whether you enjoy the lush rainforests or the endless expanse of beaches, shopping in the local market or dancing the night away, it’s all available to you in Brazil.
