Clear water and soft sand. Beautiful place without jet ski and boats. One of the best beaches in Brazil

Just a beautiful beach on an island with plenty of them. It stood out because of its soft powdery sand and expansive size in both length and width. There are a few stands available for drinks, including beer, and snacks. There is a great hike...More

We took one of the many boats offered to go from Abrao to the Lopes Mendes beach. Upon arrival, all the boats actually leave you at a beach called “pouso”. From there, count 20min walk to finally arrive at Lopes Mendes. It is totally worth...More

Maybe I was luckier with the weather than some visitors but for me in August it was perfect---sunny and dry but not too hot. The walk there from Pouso, where the boat drops you off, is not too strenuous but it is probably tricky in...More

I must say we were pretty disappointed with this beach being the "second most beautiful beach of Brazil". It was very average, nothing impressive. We found Arraial do Cabo way prettier. Anyway, we took a taxi boat, it cost us 30R per person, they take...More

hi Sean, I can't much help with your questions to be honest. We booked a transfer from Rio with Green Toad bus company, it included the boat crossing from Jacarei and was all pretty good. We didn't do any private tours on... More
