Ilha Grande boasts virgin forest and deserted beaches, perfect for a peaceful getaway or for leisurely activities.

The unspoilt island of Ilha Grande, an extension of the Emerald Coast's forested mountains, is one of Brazil's largest. A former pirate hideaway, slaving centre and prison, its sandy bays and peninsula now attract gentler visitors. The island boasts virgin, unexplored forest and deserted beaches, with most of the small hotels in the modest but lively fishing village. Enjoy the local restaurants serving excellent seafood and international cuisine. Ilha Grande is the perfect spot for a peaceful getaway or for leisurely activities, including sailing, trekking, sea kayaking and snorkeling.

On the mainland, idyllic beach resorts are the ideal bases from which to explore the tiny islands, thriving marine life and glorious nature of the Costa Verde.
