Ilha Grande

Angra dos Reis travelogue picture
Angra Dos Reis is a good jumping off spot for traveling to Ilha Grande. The ferry from Angra to Vila Abraao on Ilha Grande is R$2.60 during the week. Ilha Grande is a large, beautiful island covered in forest and protected as an eco preserve.

Favourite spots:

Praia Lopes Mendes - a fantastic white sand beach with crystal clear Atlantic water. There is no village nearby, so the water is not polluted. It's a R$10 (about US$4) boat ride from the main town of Vila Abraao.

What's really great:
Angra dos Reis travelogue picture
During the week there are very few people on Ilha Grande. There is a trail system throughout the island that facilitates hiking or just walking to your next location. Or, if you don't feel like taking a hike, take a boat to the beach. There are only two cars on the island. Both belong to the police.

Sights:
Lagoa Azul, Lopes Mendes beach. Both are spectacular and usually empty during the week.

Accommodations:
Pousada So Natureza - spotless, well maintained. Real hot water rather than the duchas of death in most other pousadas. It's about R$60 per night (US$24). For cheaper accommodations try Betos.

Restaurants:
There are quite a few good restaurants in Vila Abraao. I did get sick after eating in one (the name of which I won't mention, but if you're interested, e-mail me.) Fortunately Cipro and immodium (called Diarec in Brazil) are available over the counter just down the street.
