Located just off the emerald green coastline between Rio and Sao Paulo. Ilha Grande is a Brazilian Island Paradise, far away from the trappings of modern life.

Blanketed in tropical vegetation, there are no cars on the island and the only means of transport is by foot or (much more conveniently) by boat.

There are numerous stunning beaches hidden away in little coves making the island a joy to explore. Although the island’s main village does have some restaurants and a couple of bars, the main reason to come here is to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds.

What to do

  • Relaxing on the beach
  • Surfing
  • Trekking across the island
  • Boat trips
