Ilha Paquetá – what happens when sea pollution meets island serenity?

A 4 reais, 75 mins boat ride from Praca IV brought me to Ilha Paquetá, just off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

The island was cute and peaceful and could have been just perfect if not for the heavily polluted water of the Guanabara Bay. Oil tankers can be seen everywhere on the way. This was quite a shame.
