It really is quite a trek from Abraao and then back again, though boats are available too. Great big, empty beach with great views and a bit of history within the town. Worth a visit if you're on the island, bar far the best beach...More

Good beach to relax! Not so many people go there because have a 3 hours hiking (from Abraao). There is only one restaurant to lunch and no places to sleep (you must back to Abraao by walking).

To me this was the nicest beach I got to in Ilha Grande. It is easy to get there, the 2-hours walk being on a large road. Not so many people go there, and I only counted 6 other people on the huge beach. Bonus:...More

This beach is not reachable by boat so it was almost empty. The village itself has a small museum dedicated to the prison that used to be there but kind of feels like a ghost town. There is a small restaurant but no other services....More
