Abraao Beach, Ilha Grande

2.3
Take a boat or hike up to Abraao Beach, located in the largest village (only 1900 residents) on an island of few roads and almost no private cars. Right next to this secluded beach you can buy cold drinks and listen to live music, performed by village bands on popular BBQ nights. Make a stop here to enjoy fresh fish straight from the grill, along with juices, cocktails, and ice cream made with local fruit. This beach is popular with swimmers, kayakers, snorkelers, divers, and bodyboarders. Equipment for all water sports can be rented nearby. From the pier you can board a boat or ferry to Mangaratiba, where you can catch a daily connection for Rio de Janeiro.

  • Beautiful Yes, but felt a little dirty-there are several bars and restaurants, in addition to the boats parked. Kind of hard to shower in a "good". It is the most accessible, part of being in the village

  • It is the central beach of large ilhia and there occur things, there are the taxiboats, the port, and all the beach itself is not ugly

  • This beach has everything you need on the island: hostels, pharmacies, markets, bakeries, various types of restaurants, health, travel agencies, shops. However, as several points of the island, we feel forgotten by the Government without bins, no policing, without a center of tourist information with maps and information (the tourist is self-taught on the agencies and the local population).

Where to stay in Ilha Grande

The village area by the dock is home to the largest number of Ilha Grande's accommodations, with options varying from family-run, rustic pousadas (guesthouses) to mid-range and luxury hotels. Elsewhere on the island, you'll find upscale resorts offering wide-ranging amenities, such as swimming pools, bars, restaurants, and spas. Though most lodgings lie along the coast, a couple of options farther inland situate you in scenic parts of the jungle interior. Alternatively, head back to the mainland to sleep at one of the simple hotels in Conceicao de Jacarei, the destination of the Ilha Grande ferry service.
