I come to see this beach from Rio. Alexandra from ilhagrandetours.com help me a lot to arrange a safe and comfortable 1 day trip from Rio to to the beach. She speaks good English and very helpful, everything that she arrange for me are just perfect, the driver pick me up on time and the boat and the guide everything is just perfect and make the travel an ease. It was a long trip from Rio to Mangaratiba and then to Villa do Abrao by boat but it is quite a scenic drive and boat trip all the way to the island. I chose to go to the beach by a 3 hour trekking, medium difficulty but it is doable for most people. You will got to see other beaches too along the way and some animal if you're lucky. Lopes Mendes is a beautiful beach but to be frank it is not the most beautiful beach I've seen in Brasil and there are too many people (I was there not even on weekend, so imagine how crowded the beach on weekend). I visit the place on winter time and the weather is just great to do the trekking as it is not too hot but bring your light jacket if you also plan to visit the beach on winter time as the wind can be strong and chilly on the beach
