You need to get the boat to this beach ad you must get it before 11:30 as there are no others after this point and you then need to get a taxi boat which cost much more. We got the taxi boat as we are stupid but we split the fare with other people who got on as well. When... More

The beach is beautiful, with waves and surrounded by virgin rainforests. It feels a lot like paradise. But keep in mind there are no bathrooms, and you'll have to take some food. There's a small stand offering refreshments, but I'm not sure it's always theres, so it's a good idea to pack some food and water. Also if one accesses... More

the beach is huge and long. Bring food and drank with you. The best part is the 4 hrs walking: you may see monkeys, all kind of animals, really a beautiful scenery.

You can either go here by boat (R$25 for slow boat, and R$30 for fast boat, return tickets) or you can walk here which takes about 2,5 hours. The walk is nice and if you have time I would recommand this, at least one way. The beach is a 3 km all white and turquoise paradise which is beautiful! We... More

we both were a bit disappointed when we arrived at Abraão, as it reminded me a bit of Kuta in Bali. A lot of backpackers and tourist traps. Yet, when we took a boat trip to Lopes Mendes Beach, everything changed :) walking from Abraão would take 3 hours, so we took the slow boat and it took us quite... More

The best beach I have ever seen. Like something from a postcard. We took the trail and although it was pretty scary it is well worth the hike through the lush tropical rainforest. You pass many beach on the way. But what better way to cool off in the crystals clear water once you arrive at this breathtaking beach

Short trip from Illha Grande on one of the taxi boats, they'll be plenty about - better is to wait for the main boat with other tourists, lot cheaper and fairly regular. This beach is titled 'the best in the world' i've been on a few and find it hard to see how it's got the title - it's a... More

Paradise. One of the most beautiful beaches in the island. You gotta go to Pouso and take the trail to the beach which makes the experience of getting there even better.
