Lopes Mendes Beach, Ilha Grande

4.7
On an island world-famous for over 100 beaches, Lopes Mendes Beach stands out with its 3 km (1.9 mi) of white fine sand. The water remains quite shallow a long way out, providing visitors with nearly perfect surfing conditions. Frequently ranked among the world’ most stunning beaches, this long strip of warm sand can be reached from the main settlement on the island by a short boat ride, followed by a hike up a relatively steep footpath. Walk through the lush island vegetation to get some exercise and prepare yourself for a refreshing dip in the crystalline waters. Before hitting the trail, remember to bring lots of water, bug repellent, and a good flashlight, as darkness descends rapidly under the thick forest canopy. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Ilha Grande trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • We arrive at her barge or go 2 hours jungle with Abrao. Little people on it but you can buy beer and drinks. Feel nature's wildlife, waves of quite large, very few old are surfing, play ball and lying down. The beach is a few km long, on both ends of the large rocks that you can enter to do amazing photos. The most beautiful beach on the island.

  • The dimension of this beach and the blue of the water is impressive. It is ideal for surfers by the quantity and quality of the waves that it has.
