If you like tropical beaches and hiking, the "Big Island" is the perfect place. Its area is about 200 square kilometers of mountains, jungle, historic ruins and over 100 beaches of transparent green water, linked by well kept trails. It is located 2 hours south of Rio, in the Angra dos Reis Bay, and it's part of the largest remaining area covered with Atlantic Rain Forest, known as the Costa Verde (Green Coast). The island hosted Brazil's largest high security prison during most of the 20th century, which is why it was kept relatively isolated and largely unspoiled. In 1994, the prison was closed and the island became a state park with no roads and cars, which makes a paradise for hiking.
