We hiked from the main village of Ilha Grande to Lopes Mendes beach recently, which took about 2.5 hours. The hike wasn’t too challenging - anyone with reasonable fitness levels would be fine. Once arriving at Lopes Mendes the views were amazing. White sandy beaches...More

Simply stunning. Although a bit of track to get there from where you are dropped off it more than makes up for it on arrival.

This is a beautiful 3km long beach on the south side of Ilha Grande. There are larger waves here, much larger than other beaches on the island. The beach is wide (100 meters), so there is plenty of room. On the day we went, there...More

A nice beach but there are others just as nice in Ihla Grande. Huge waves and can be busy but has a life guard. You will need to bring lunch as all you can buy is crisps etc

This beach faces the ocean. The waves are much higher than in the other side. It is a very large beach with beautiful white sand.

We hiked from Vila do Abraão, it’s a good 2h - 2,5h walk from town, reaching two beaches on the way there. I recommend hiking there and taking a boat back from Pouso. Sand is white and better than the other beaches. Even good on...More
