Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Angra Dos Reis / Ilha Grande / Lopes Mendes Beach
On an island world-famous for over 100 beaches, Lopes Mendes Beach stands out with its 3 km (1.9 mi) of white fine sand. The water remains quite shallow a long way out, providing visitors with nearly perfect surfing conditions. Frequently ranked among the world’ most stunning beaches, this long strip of warm sand can be reached from the main settlement on the island by a short boat ride, followed by a hike up a relatively steep footpath. Walk through the lush island vegetation to get some exercise and prepare yourself for a refreshing dip in the crystalline waters. Before hitting the trail, remember to bring lots of water, bug repellent, and a good flashlight, as darkness descends rapidly under the thick forest canopy. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Ilha Grande trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Lopes Mendes Beach reviews
One of the best beaches i ever went to. I walked from Abraão To Lopes Mendes. It was a good hike...not hard and we past a bunch of beaches. more »

Great long beach, with fine sand and a great view. Available by boat from abrao followed by a 20 min trail or by trail all the way (2-3hr). Not at all crowded compared to brazilian beaches. Underdeveloped area, preserving the authentic feel. Went on a cloudy day and still really enjoyed it!
