Crystal clear water

A must-see in Ilha Grande. We went to Lagoa Azul as a part if an organised trip by Easy Transfer. Would definitely go again. Highly recommended if you like snorkelling.

We visited Lagoa Azul and the water was calm and the bottom is mostly sand with less life to see compared to Lagoa Verde. There I just saw a few fish (even a flying fish), crabs and a starfish. Another guys saw a green turtle.... I was not that luck!

It is an incredible place, where you can see all kind of inhabitants of the sea. But you should do this tour with a local with a fast boat. The locals are doing some kind of ecological tourism and know everything very well. They have an eye for Try to avoid the big sailing ships. Instead of this ask for... More

We went twice in a week, enjoyed a lot snorklling and swining in the area. It is not a real lagoon but really amazing colour, we saw crabs, different fish and made a hole day tour, took our own meal and enjoyed the day!

We saw crabs, fish and a squid in the hour we were there. Went with a speed boat driver who took a party of 10 for 100 reais each from 10.30 til 4.30 (it would have been cheaper for cash). Bottled water was included and we stopped at a beach side restaurant where we could buy lunch.

Speachless. A MUST do tour. Some snorkeling and sun bathing. Some tours even include lunch. Nice boat and short ride so no need to worry of getting sea sick.

It's more like a green bay, and in January it was filled with boats and tourists floating on the water. You do see quite a lot of fish when skorkeling, but the water is seems a little dirty with small floating particles. There is also quite a lot of garbage floating around.

This place is Perfect to swim and see the fishes. I think it must be better to go there when there are less visitors, because many boats stay there when there are many visitors and the trip become less interesting.
