Praia Preta, Ilha Grande

4.1
#5 of 42 in Outdoors in Ilha Grande
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.

  • Beach that meets River, beautiful! The great advantage is that the track is feasible for any type of access, that is, to anyone who has problems with mobility as I. You can go walking along the trail, well put, until the bridge where the river meets the sea. If you can go to the water can go down five or six steps, a little before this second bridge and this in the river. Unmissable. I've been there, is very worthwhile, the landscape is beautiful and the access is easy, get there early.

  • Cute, quiet beach. It is walking distance from the Centre, it takes about 20 minutes. The beach is quite extensive, with natural shade.

  • The 10 minutes of Abraham, for sure, the Black Beach couldn't stay away. The place is perfect for letting your kids will. The beach has a Creek that empties into the ocean. You pass it on the trail to enchantress falls. Both the ida as on back or just do the circuit of Abraham. The path is marvelous and you still pass on potion, in the ruins of the aqueduct and Lazaretto. Trust me, go to track is sensational.

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.
