The town of Linhares stands on the southeast coast of Brazil. It is in the State of Espirito Santo, 8 miles northeast of the state capital Vitoria and 4 miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro. If you hire a car in Linhares you'll soon notice that all of them are linked by the main BR-11 coast road. You'll also be able to tour the area. The highlights include the lovely Nature Reserve in the Valley of the river Doce, a well-organised family friendly park with nature trails, and the Tamar Turtle project, where you can see leatherback turtles on the beach at night.
Linhares is a quiet market town dominated by agriculture, sitting on the river Doce in an area of lakes and lagoons 20 miles from the river's mouth. It's not really a tourist destination, the beaches are at the ocean to the east and you'll need a hire car to reach them. In the city itself there's a smart central green area, the Praca 22 de Agosto with a playground and outdoor gym, and that array of more than 60 lakes to explore. The pick of them might be Juparana, which has an acclaimed sandy freshwater beach.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
