This archipelago is composed by seven small islands and rocks, located at 3.1 miles (5km) south from Ipanema beach. The islands are called: “Laje da Cagarra”, “Cagarra”, “Filhote da Cagarra”, “Matias”, “Praça Onze”, “Comprida” and “Palmas”.
There is no consensus on where the name “Cagarras” came from. The most accepted theory says it is an allusion to the elevated number of seabirds that live there.
Nowadays, the National Monument of the Cagarras is an Integral Protection Conservation Unit, which means its typical vegetation is protected.
The city of Rio de Janeiro owns much of its beauty to Guanabara Bay, which is one of the most well know seascapes worldwide.
The Portuguese Jesuit priest and writer, Fernão Cardim, described the Bay, in the 16th century, as a place which its incredible beauty was designed by God.
It is the second largest bay in the Brazilian Coast, with an area of approximately 154 square miles (400 km²).
With an astonishing natural beauty, the city of Rio de Janeiro gets even more marvelous at sunset. The mixture of red and orange colors projected by the sun transforms Rio’s coast in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
