Imagine an island that is just 3min away from the heart of Barra da Tijuca by a boat ride. This island is right in front of a metro station, 10min away by walk from the beach, 5min away from Olegário Maciel street - the liveliest street in Barra da Tijuca (with bars, restaurants and night clubs). But once in the island you only hear the sound of the birds. Remember, it's an island so you have to take a quick boat ride to come and go - and that is amazing! The boat crossing costs R$1 each way.
