365 islands, they say one for each day of the year, and 2000 beaches...what can say?! just agree that's one of the most beautiful places in Brazil. I've heard Mr R.Abramovich has the same opinion:))
The naval portuguese fleet got at The Long Island (Ilha Grande) in January 1502. It was "Kings day" (Dia de Reis) and because of this special date The place was named "Kings Creek "(Angra dos Reis).
One of the members of the fleet wrote these words to Portugal:
"Sometimes I felt the ecstasy of the flowers and tree's perfume so strong that I thought I had found paradise. And what I will say of the great number of birds, full of colors and their tunes, how many and how beautiful? I won't say more because i know you will never believe me."
