Tropical Forest, Ilha Grande

(4.9/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
The entire island of Ilha Grande is covered in Tropical Forest, a forest of lush an varied vegetation. There are plenty of trails for you to hike and explore. You can walk for miles through this rich jungle, which provides a cool atmosphere, sheltering you from the hot sun. It’s abundant with monkeys, colorful birds, beautiful lookout points, exuberant fauna, coves, and waterfalls where you can take a refreshing dip. Bring your own water, as there is no one who sells it along the way. Enjoy a picnic with your loved ones at one of the tables and benches along the way. Tropical Forest is truly a sensory experience with all the colorful sights and interesting sounds provided by the monkeys and the birds. Put Tropical Forest and other Ilha Grande attractions into our Ilha Grande tourist route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Big Island offers a unique range of trails that can be made from families with small children to seasoned adventurers who want to go to the limit! All very well signposted and marked. Worth the visit for SURE!

  • You can choose to visit all beaches on Ilha Grande by boat, but it would be a terrible loss. Half the charm of the island is in this forest, cross the paths through the vegetation, and take a dip at the beach by way of reward for completion of each trail.

  • Without its lush and tropical forest, the island would not be the same. The 10 days I was on the island, I think having crossed 6 times the forest, all different places, and beautiful. If you are from animo to meet and walk for a couple of hours, I recommend you follow the road to Praia Preta, stop there, cool off in the sea and follow road up, learn about pools, the famous waterfall, the aqueduct and the myriad of wildlife that can be found. If you follow the signs, you can reach different beaches around the island. Use repellant!
