Very nice

We hiking to get there and it was very nice. For me it is not a easy hiking, but is not that difficult as way to Lopes Mendes. You can get there in one hour. Try it!

Very small beach. You can go there by boat or trial (2 hours by walk up and down). Nothing to see there - just relax. You can buy coconut and some chips there - better to bring your refreshment.

We enjoyed coming here after our long trek in the jungle. The beach is a small and when we got there, there were many people so it was a bit crowded..but I'd still recommend coming here, we had a nice time and enjoyed a delicious coconut on the beach!

A lovely, small beach. Perfect for swimming. The walk from the village is beautiful. Steep in places, we were followed by a group of howler monkeys for most of the way. Advise to arrive early & leave by 3pm as a number of boats arrive in the afternoon from the various snorkelling tours and it gets crowded and noisy.

This is a great beach. But very small. And at high tide, everyone has to crowd into an even smaller area. Unless you can get there early in the morning (or perhaps a weekday off season), I would give it a miss. There are plenty of other beaches which don´t have the same size v visitor number problems.

We trekked to the waterfall and beach. Great waterfall with a cool pool of water at the bottom for wading in. The beach itself is another IG gem. Loses one star because, despite its small size, it is very popular with large tour boats. We were lucky that it had emptied when we arrived, but better to head to a... More

It is a small and gorgeous site, but spoiled by all the people dumped there by all kind of boats, from dozens of taxiboats to some big "escunas". A management plan for the tourism activity here is urgent. If you are there off season, don't miss it.

The beach is too small. If there are lot of people it is even worse. The trail is not worth it, but the Feiticeira waterfall, which is about 20 min from the beach is beautiful!!!

I prefer beaches, so if you dont have much time on Ilha Grande you can skip this waterfall. The hike to get there is all the way up the mountain and you can go to a beach afterwards that is small and doesnt really have nothing special. I heard Dois Rios is much better. You can go back by boat.
