this little village is worth the 17 km (!) walk from Abraaozinho. The road takes you over the mountain and through the rainforest, just beautiful! Take enough water with you... Dois Rios was deserted when the political prison was closed (only in 1994) and it...More

It really is quite a trek from Abraao and then back again, though boats are available too. Great big, empty beach with great views and a bit of history within the town. Worth a visit if you're on the island, bar far the best beach...More

We loved the white sand beach with nobody! The two rivers run crossing the beach to reach sea allows us to bath in freshwater on the beach which is the reason that think think it is "magic" Don't go to eat in the only restaurant...More

Good beach to relax! Not so many people go there because have a 3 hours hiking (from Abraao). There is only one restaurant to lunch and no places to sleep (you must back to Abraao by walking).

After 2 and half hours (from Abrao) hiking up and down in beautiful tropical rain forest you will reach abandoned former prison for dangerous prisoners. The atmosphere is absolutely fabulous! Visit also the museum which will tell you more about the history of this village...More

To me this was the nicest beach I got to in Ilha Grande. It is easy to get there, the 2-hours walk being on a large road. Not so many people go there, and I only counted 6 other people on the huge beach. Bonus:...More

This beach is not reachable by boat so it was almost empty. The village itself has a small museum dedicated to the prison that used to be there but kind of feels like a ghost town. There is a small restaurant but no other services....More
