Amazingly clear water and beautiful white sand. Just like a dream. Good surf spot I hear. I recommend hiking there in the morning (around 2,5 hours hike from Vila do Abraão) Maybe you'll see a group of monkeys like us! And later take a slow boat (R$ 15) back just before sunset - in winter around 5 o'clock. It's really... More

My family loved hiking to this location and catching a boat back. The beach was beautiful and the swimming was great for kids.

As soon you arrive there... You wont believe how amazing is this beach. There is not vendors or anyone different from the tour people.. I might say is one of the best beaches around the world.

We hiking from Abraao to Lopes Mendes. It is not easy, I think if you do some exercises and like walking you can do it. But it is a place to see again.

Whether with family, friends, or your new bride/groom, Lopes Mendes beach is spectacular. The hike from Abraao is a solid 2.5 hours (pack plenty of water and snacks), and takes you past two quiet cove beaches with soft waves. Once you make it to the last beach, schedule a return boat (~R$15-20 per person, depending), and go enjoy a couple... More

Maaaaan, it is quite a walk to reach this beach. the shortest hike is around 30 min after you have used the taxi boat from the town. We were walking and were getting more anxious with every steps, as we were hearing and reading all those infos. Finally we made it down the hill and felt the sands, but still... More

Hked here from the main town of Arbraao which is over two hours and the beach didn't disappoint. Very fresh, white sand and stretches for many metres. Sea can be rough so swimming is difficult but paddling is possible.

We did the 8km hike from abraao to lopes mendes. If you feel you are able - we would definitely recommend the hike - you pass through another beach on the way (palmas) plus lots of beautiful scenery from the top. We would say the hike is a moderate difficulty - Is quite relentlessly steep in the heat but nothing... More
