What to see in Ilha Grande

Ilha Grande, a jewel off Brazil's coast, beckons with its untouched beauty and serene atmosphere. Home to lush rainforests, secluded beaches and crystal-clear waters, it offers a haven for nature lovers and adventurers. Whether hiking through its trails or relaxing on its shores, Ilha Grande promises an unforgettable escape.

One of the most enchanting experiences on Ilha Grande is exploring its lush rainforest interior, home to a network of scenic hiking trails that wind through verdant jungles and lead to hidden waterfalls, panoramic viewpoints and secluded beaches. One of the most popular hikes on the island is the trek to Pico do Papagaio, the highest peak on Ilha Grande, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape and coastline. The trail begins in the village of Parnaioca and ascends through dense forest, eventually reaching the summit, where hikers can marvel at the stunning vistas stretching as far as the eye can see. Along the way, visitors may encounter a variety of wildlife, including monkeys, birds and colourful butterflies, as well as lush vegetation and cascading streams.

Another must-do activity on Ilha Grande is exploring its stunning coastline and pristine beaches, which offer endless opportunities for relaxation, water sports and exploration. With over 100 beaches scattered around the island, visitors are spoiled for choice when it comes to finding the perfect spot to soak up the sun and enjoy the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean. One of the most iconic beaches on the island is Lopes Mendes, renowned for its powdery white sands, turquoise waters and world-class surfing conditions. Visitors can spend the day lounging on the beach, swimming in the clear waters or catching waves on the pristine surf breaks. For those seeking a more secluded beach experience, Praia de Aventureiro offers a tranquil setting with its golden sands, towering palm trees and crystal-clear lagoons, accessible only by boat or a challenging hike.

For those interested in delving into the island's rich history and cultural heritage, a visit to the village of Vila do Abraão offers a fascinating glimpse into Ilha Grande's past. Once a bustling port and centre of trade during Brazil's colonial era, Vila do Abraão is now a charming fishing village with a relaxed atmosphere and laid-back vibe. Visitors can explore the village's cobblestone streets, lined with colourful houses, boutique shops and beachfront restaurants, where they can sample traditional Brazilian cuisine and fresh seafood dishes. Additionally, Vila do Abraão is home to several historic landmarks, including the ruins of the Lazaretto, a former quarantine station for immigrants and the Church of San Sebastião, a colonial-era church with a picturesque seaside location.
