What you'll do

We leave towards the Southern coast of Rio de Janeiro to sail across to Ilha Grande (Big Island). The boat ride from Conceição to Abraão is provided by VilaNova Tour, the largest and most established boat company in the Island. As a former federal prison island within the state, the place has been preserved as one of the most beautiful getaways of Brazil. As we set our foot on the island, we'll get acquainted with our base village of Abraao and its surroundings, such as the Lazareto Ruins and the old aqueduct. Then, it's time to sail around the island towards the Pouso beach. Should we be lucky, we'll see dolphins and turtles swimming on the way there. After docking in Pouso beach, we'll enjoy a short hiking to reach Lopes Mendes beach and its unparalleled beauty. We'll spend most of the day there exploring the nature and its amazing and vast inlet.

Luiz & Team

Ilha Grande has been my favorite getaway in Rio since 1992 when my parents took me there for the first time. It also led me into eco tourism activities ever since. I was born and raised in Rio & been guiding since 2003. I have lived abroad and visited over 20 different countries around the world. I know how important it is to feel welcomed when experiencing a new destination as if you were a friend of mine. Besides tour guide, I'm a former professional athlete, samba lover, surfing addicted and world traveller. Showing off Rio is my passion and hobby!

Where you'll be

Abraão is the main village on the island and has some interesting spots surrounding it. We'll get to know two of these places before heading to the Lopes Mendes beach on the Southern side. Lopes Mendes is a very popular beach on the Southern part of the Island. It welcomes many tribes as it has a considerably easy access for the island standards. Therefore, on a good surfing day, we might see some waves been smashed by local surfers too.
