Parish of Santana Beach, Ilha Grande

(4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful beach! The vision of the coconut trees and the Church make it a special place. Good show after lunch on the beach Japariz, which is next.
