You have to take a Taxi boat to reach this beach from Ilha grande. This place is secluded and people leave from there before it gets dark. There is zero plastic and pollution here.

This beach is very easy to access via boat and a short walk, but due to the accessibility very overcrowded. There are similar beaches on the island like dois rios, which are less accessible, but as beautiful as Lopes Mendes and with much less people.

Nature beach as one of the beat beaches in the world. Clean water, white sand and nature everywhere your eyes look at.

Walking on this beach is like walking on flour. The consistency of the sand is magical. And the water is just perfect! Lovely place.

We went on a daytrip to Lopes Mendez beach during our stay on Ilha Grande. It is the most famous beach, but it was not overly crowded. You can get there with a boat trip and a small walk. The beach is very large and...More
