Praia Preta, Ilha Grande

(3.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Praia Preta is a rare place indeed with its black sand, which is not something you come across too often. The warm and calm waters are ideal for swimming and the abundance of trees create a nice respite from the sun. A river running through it forms a unique combination and the natural pools of water provide an alternative to swimming in the sea. Nearby, you can visit the ruins of Lazaretto, which functioned as a prison and a quarantine for sick people during colonial Brazil. Praia Preta is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Ilha Grande Edition.

  • ImSchnellboot an adventurous boat trip to the beaches are very impressive and beautiful beaches partly only by the occupants of the boat about 8 people visited, who's not afraid of small boats in the breakneck speed on the open sea, which should make the Brazilian real per person

  • We arrived on cruise to Isla Grande, in that opportunity didn't have lot of money and we decided rather than hire an excursion, to walk to that place we find to us. We saw locals walking towards the North and follow them we are entering an ecological reserve and tour jungle bordering the sea arrived at this beautiful beach, surprised by the color of the sand and the beauty of the place.
