Preta Beach (Lazareto), Ilha Grande
(3.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Preta Beach (Lazareto) 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. Preta Beach (Lazareto) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Ilha Grande Edition.

  • Ideal for those who don't want to walk a lot. A super fast track from the village to the beach ... without ups and downs, the beach is small and quiet. .. it has nothing ... just sand and mar.....do the flip side of the village. Worth the visit ... is on the way to other trails like the potion, waterfall of sorceress. I went on a day that was a little bit thin and boring. By being close to the village, we went there to take a dip in the sea that was until warm.

  • To get to this beach is close, if you stay in Village of Abraham can go walking or biking, in the way if you have some legal viewpoints to see the sea, beautiful visuals, but when you get on the beach is not that great, it's beautiful but the island has much more beautiful beaches. It's called black beach sand pq is black. Have one end of the beach with some rocks, is the most beautiful part of her. The extension is small and tight.
