Lovely lovely beach. worth of visiting! Water was fresh and clean. And in a hot day you can find nice shady places to stay. Don't forget to use sun screen at least with factor 50.

Lopes Mendes is the best beach I have been to in all my travels (USA, Carribean, Europe, Bali), absolutely beautiful and the sanf is so soft it crunches under your feet. If you are visiting Ilha Grande you simply cannot miss it. As other reviewers have mentioned, you need to walk about 15 minutes through the jungle, but that just adds to the unforgettable experience. The walk isn't too hard, and is worth it no matter your age. Try to get there early so you can have some time to yourself, that said, the beach won't get too crowded and you're sure to find a quiet place to enjoy the beauty. There are a few vendors that sell sandwiches and water, but it's probably best to bring your own. Remember to carry out your trash and leave the beach as beautiful as you found it for the next visitors!

When visiting Ilha Grande, I would say that Lopes Mendes is a must! We did the 3 hours hike and then took one of the boats back to the town. The hike is a stand out memory and I would say it's def a must if you want to get the full experience. The beach itself is stunning and is very natural. Very little garbage, no big stores/restaurants and the sand even squeaks when you walk on it!

The sun is strong so make sure to prepare yourself! Boogie boards and surfboards are available to rent if you're into that too. Everything is very reasonably priced as well :)

need to walk 15/20 minutes in the jungle (really confortable path) and ...you are in a paradise. If you can go there before 11 am you will be alone on an immense long beach. After that you will have maybe.....100 people! Nothing anyways!

I´ve been travelling 2 weeks visting the most famous beaches from Sao Paulo to Buzios and this beach is the best I´ve visited. No buildings next to the beach, its water is clean, warm, with nice waves; Theres 3 ways to do it:
1. Do the walking (2,5hrs to go and 2,5 hrs to come back)
2; Do the walking just to go there and come back in a Taxi boat (20 brazilian reais)
3. Do the whole trip by Taxi boat (30 brazilian reais)

I recommend this beach 100%
