You can get away from the city for a day by taking a cruise to
Sepetiba Bay and its many scenic tropical islands. The area has
calm waters perfect for snorkelling, canoeing and swimming. Islands
like Jaguanum, Pombeba, are known for prime nature watching with an
abundance of birdlife and dolphins; and Papagaio, Saracura and
Bernardo are better for aspiring fishermen. There are also a few
good seafood restaurants scattered among the islands.
