     Big Island on the coast of the state of RJ is a paradise on earth and boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil. Paddling we have the time and the possibility of knowing all the natural beauties that will appear in the way. For those who enjoy scuba diving there are several options for wrecks.

     Paddles will be relatively short so we can have more time at our stops. And there will be many attractions, deserted beaches and among the most beautiful in Brazil, waterfalls, the ruins of the prison at Dois Rios beach, Acaiá under water cave, the bays of Blue Lagoon, Green Lagoon and Star among many others attractions. And after the turn around the island we have another three days to rest and to know the surroundings of the village of Abraão.
