We visited in the middle of August during a week long downpour. Everything was wet and soggy. The 2.5 hour hike through the jungle over the sloping clay paths was hair raising and physically challenging (and we are three quite fit young people). Arriving at...More

Worth the trek for 3 hours or take a boat. Wide beach which means you can walk out far! Make sure the sun is shining! Not many vendors or food so take your own! Not too many people either but a big wide beach where...More

Crisp white sand that, when you step on it, give away the same sound as if you are stepping on newly fallen snow. The beach is huge and long. The things that are missing for a full score is the water temperature (I know I'm...More

I walked here from Abraao on the 3 hour trail, which is amazing in itself, but this beach is just something else. Walk right up to the far left end where there is practically no-one around and the view is phenomenal. Actual paradise.

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.

We did the awesome trek from Abraao which took us through rainforest and along gorgeous beaches. By the time we reached Lopes Mendez the weather had turned from sunny to thundery so we didn't see it at its best. Even under the dark sky it...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
