Photographer's Note

The Lagoon of Iriri or Coca-cola as normaly is named is a nice place for bath, with calm water, with only 3m deep and white sand.

Here from this point of view we can see the waves of the close beach named Costa Azul.

In 2000 the region was decreed as an environmental protection area, because it is part of North Fluminense Shore Ecosystems.

An agreement between the Rio das Ostras City and Petrobrás company are helping to protect the biological diversity, ensuring the sustainable use of its natural resources and discipline the process of area use. The Lagoon is part of the watershed that include the Imboassica Lagoon, Salgada Lagoon, Itapebussus Lagoon and Ipuca Lagoon.
