Mangaratiba is a municipality located in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro. Its population is 29,272 (2005) and its area is 352 km².[1]

Muddy beaches and the incongruous industrial presence of the Terminal de Sepetiba put off many people stopping at Mangaratiba. 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. Its most important boroughs are Muriqui, Ibicuí and Itacuruçá.

Many large bulk carriers enter the port of Mangaratiba, fetching heavy loads of iron ore bound for especially European ports. As such, the port of Mangaratiba is one of the largest in Brazil.
