Parish of Santana Beach, Ilha Grande

(160+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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. Plan your Parish of Santana Beach visit and explore what else you can see and do in Ilha Grande using our Ilha Grande vacation trip planner.

  • Tranquil beach, with a church history, Portuguese Baroque architecture and a Palm tree the highest of ilha grande, as old as the Church.

  • The location is beautiful, but it's not the most beautiful of Angra. The ads speak of the Church of the array, but the Church was closed when I went and there was no tour guide or information about the relevance of the site. The place resists the time really, but for those who do not know the story, it's just an old location.

  • Wonderful, clean beach, with a small trail that leads to the other side of the island. One of the best tours I've done in Ilha Grande.
