Presídio Beach – Anchieta Island

At Presídio Beach (Praia do Presídio) on Anchieta Island (Ilha Anchieta), there is the landing pier of most of the schooner trips that arrive for the visits to the Anchieta Island State Park.

It is on this beach that there is the Visitor Center and the famous Ruins of the Prison, which are the facilities of the Old Penal Colony, which was deactivated in 1955 after one of the biggest prison revolts that Brazil knew.
