I have never seen a beautiful beach such as Lopes Mendes. It was a great location for whatever lesiure you needed. The waves were really strong and kept pulling in but the guards made sure that I was safe and wasn't going far. Aside from that, a group of my friends & I played beach volleyball and had an amazing time.

Definitely would bring something to eat and good hiking shoes to this beach. The food was expensive there and we had to hike our way there to get to the beach. It was a long hike, we say about 15 minutes (definitely a good workout!). But if you want to go to the best beaches around Ilha Grande, I would definitely go to Lopes Mendes.

Our group was interviewing sites that had sustainable practices and we have made a web page for travelers convenience! Check it out! It is a great way to know which places to go to! :)

This beach is gorgeous. You can swim for a while, walk and climb on the rocks and suntan with no disruptions. You also have enough space to play games with friends.

Great beach, great water but VERY strong sea currents. I was standing on my feet, and the sea started to pull me into the sea. In 2 ninutes I was a 100 meters from the shore with no chance of getting back. I swim very well, and I am a rescue diver. For the fist time in my life I had to ASK FOR HELP- Thank God the lifeguards saw me and rescued me. The people dont advise you. The just sell you the boat trip. The only people who told me about many drownings in that neach where the scuba intructurs from ELITE DIVE CENTER, best in the Island. Surfers rescue a lot of people. I was really scared to death. I started asking for helpas sonn as I tried to swim back abd could not. That beach is no joke.
