We enjoyed every minute at this particular beach. Didn`t like the high prices of the taxi boats. The food is a bit more expensive than the normal restaurants at the island, but one dish eats two people and great food.

A beach hard to describe with a calm and welcoming environment. A feeling of paradise on earth. Very nice to visit alone, with family, friends...whatever. Also good for surfers!

One of the most beautiful beaches I have seen. The hiking is just a little bit tiring so you need to be very healthy to go all the way from Palmas to Lopes Mendes. You have the option to go from Pouso, if you go there by boat, the hiking from Pouso is just 20 minutes

It is the kind of place that makes you feel grateful for everything you have. It's simplicity and complexity at the same... God's love out loud. And minimally spoiled by civilization. Definitely one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet.

Esta é uma das 10 praias mais bonitas do Brasil segundo o Jornal The Guardian. Realmente é uma praia belíssima da Ilha Grande, com águas cristalinas, areia branca e totalmente isolada. O acesso é feito a partir de tours que partem da Vila do Abraão (comunidade central da Ilha Grande). A Ilha Grande fica localizada em Angra dos Reis a... More

The sand feels like walking on snow, the mountains create a fantastic surrounding and you you will experience monkeys comkeys coming down from the trees...fantastic!

Book a boat trip alone, 90 reais per hour , and go by all the beautiful beaches. Book in Angra! Green blue water, sandy beaches, colorfulmfishes, fascinating scenery. Plain white beaches seem dull after this view!

We took the 2 hour hike from our hostel in the village on Ilha Grande to Lopes Mendes Beach, which can be recommended. When we arrived it was an amazing experience. This beach is like the ones you see on postcards. The waves were beautiful, the beach was lovely and the landscape amazing. A must see in Brazil!

At first we've made the pathway starting from Abraão to Lopes Mendes. It took 2 and a half hours. You will find some other beautifull beaches trough your way. The other days we went by boat, witch is faster. Lopes Mendes has a breathtaking view. The beach is very well preserved. There is the forest behind you, no buildings. And... More
