This destination was highly recommended by all guides and previous visitors. Ilha Grande… The big Island… not much of imagination when naming fabulous places like this one!
Paradise like beaches, deep forest trails and to top it up, no car nor motor vehicle! (except for firemen, garbage pickers, paramedics and police). I was told that 3 nights would be more than enough to get a taste of the island… we barely scratched the surface… Any trail leading to magnificent beaches takes a minimum of 90 mins at slow pace… some of them would require a full day walk… So, if you like hiking, book at least a week there and try to get accommodation as you hop around the island. It is BIG!!! well named after all! You’ll find plenty of wonderful pictures on the web but hey… this is MY blog… so here are mine!
