Parish of Santana Beach, Ilha Grande

3.9
At only 300 m (984 ft) long, Parish of Santana Beach is small but perfectly formed. Fine white sand is met by calm, crystal clear water, and you won’t be able to resist diving in and swimming among the shoals of fish. A trail through the vegetation leads you to a beautiful, simple church, neglected cemetery, and numerous ruins; all that is left of the once great and prosperous 17th century parish of Santana.

  • It's a very nice beach can go with family and children despite having stopped 20 minutes thanks only to meet has a trail until you reach the Church liked it very much.

  • The beach as well as being good, offers fine dining options. I don't know how it looks at night. But throughout the day is pretty busy. Sell to Acai.

  • Very nice beach (not the most beautiful of Angra), crystal clear waters, with green tones. Part of the road maps of the walks of schooners.

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.
