Photographer's Note

Mangaratiba is a municipality located in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro. Its population is 29,272 (2005) and its area is 352 kmイ.[1]

Muddy beaches and the incongruous industrial presence of the Terminal de Sepetiba put off many people stopping at MANGARATIBA , which lies 25km west of Itacuru釿 along the BR-101. The town setting is attractive, with a mountain backdrop, a beautiful bay in front with fishing boats at anchor and a late eighteenth-century church dominating the main square. On the whole, however, the initial impression is the correct one; there are better spots to stay further along the coast.

Mangaratiba voc畸ulo tupi que significa "lugar onde h muitos mangar疽". De mangar: o cora鈬o ou batata da bananeira, isto , a ponta terminal da infloresc麩cia da bananeira; e tyba: stio onde h muita abund穗cia de alguma coisa.
