The world's largest country in the tropics
Brazil has a fantastic coastline with a number of places to explore. The yachting activities are basically concentrated around four different areas: Salvador, Bahia; Angra dos Reís, Rio de Janeiro; Ilha Bela, Sao Paolo; Florianopolis, Santa Catarina. Of these places the most beautiful cruising grounds you will find in and around Ilha Grande, Angra dos Reís, also known as Costa Verde, The Green Coast. This is where the only bareboat yacht charter exists in Brazil. Skippered yacht charter is available in different places.
The Bay of Ilha Grande is a very well protected area with around 100 islands that offers turquoise waters, white and sandy beaches, secluded anchorages and best of all, sailing all year around. Sailing in Brazil is safe, there are no hurricanes, no tsunamis, and you are far away from the big cities. You will just find friendly and happy people wanting to give you a helping hand. If you want to participate on a wandering yacht, we suggest that you start in the area of Ilha Grande, Rio de Janeiro and go north towards Salvador and Fernando de Noronha. A sailing full of one of the best natural beauty the world has to offer, Brazil is a must for everyone who loves to relax on their sea legs.
