Wide open beach with good swimming. Not overrun by vendors selling their wares and refreshments. Big enough to get lost on in peak season.

The beach is pretty although we have seen better ones in other countries. We recommend going there because the trek through atlantic rain forest was nice.

Easy to get there walking, and to take a taxi boat back to abrao.. Take your own food and beverages (they'll rip you off for a pair of sandwiches)... Miles and miles of white sand, blue water and a some people...

It's a beautiful beach, partly because boats are not allowed there and it is somewhat secluded. You can take a water taxi to the town nearby and then do an easy 20 minute hike to the beach. Or you could do the 3 hour hike from Abraoo, which can be very difficult in the heat.

Totally worth it. We did the hike from the main town to Lopes Mendes, and took the boat back. Relaxing, beautiful, and not too crowded. You can't go to IG without hitting up Lopes Mendes.

Do not go to Ilha Grande without going to this beach. We bought the boat ride from one of the tour guide store fronts down the small village street. The hike from the boat to the beach is super fun. Do not let the huge hill at the beginning of the hike discourage you - once you get to the... More
