Beach Nature / Park
Caxadaco Beach is noted for clear waters surrounded by lush vegetation and huge rock formations, which adventurous visitors often use as diving platforms. At this small secluded beach you can swim or sunbathe in almost complete privacy. You can reach it by boat or on foot by a series of trails leading through the native forest. There are no tourist facilities here, so make sure to bring your own food and water when you come. Spend a quiet family day here, or set up your tent near the water and spend some time hiking to other popular beaches on the island.

  • A beautiful beach, the sea is transparent and has a small strip of sand. Sensational Beach for those who enjoy tranquility and nature. Does not have stalls and even bars.

  • We arrived at this beach on the tour around the island, it is a small beach but it is very nice with a beautiful landscape, it is somewhat locked so there isn't much waves and swim-quiet, also the water is transparent and snorkeling can be. You can also upload to one of the large stones and jump into the sea, fun!

  • The ideal is to visit the beach on schedule with fewer tourists, because the beach is small and not many people. It's worth making the trail that leads to the rocks and see the beach from the top, however the trail is narrow and steep.

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.
