Paradise Island with a hint of panic!

A travel blog entry by philjoule

Hola Ilha Grande! 60 miles of island, roughly 83% of this is tree, 2% people who live and work here, zero% is cars and the rest is little monkeys, travellers and the odd soppy romantic couple whom thing the beach is a private place to lay on one and other and 'canoodle' - FYI it isn't dirty dirty people! So we got here and it was the most amazingly …

Ilha Grande - Brazil

A travel blog entry by phil-marie2010


Leaving Ouro Preto at 10pm on the overnight bus to Rio, then taking the 8am bus to Angra do Reis for two hours we reached the coastal town at 10am and had a short wait to get the ferry to Ilha Grande.

We arrived in Ilha Grande by midday. Ilha Grande, literal translation, means Big Island, is an island located off the coast of Rio de …

Rain in paradise

A travel blog entry by dhruve_anjli


We had a final 5 days to rest and relax before indulging in 24 hour caipirinha and samba fueled Carnaval days in Rio de Janeiro. It was our last chance to take in some fresh air and carefree ambles around the sandy streets of a paradise island, Ilha Grande; warm aquamarine waters, secluded beaches, palm trees, no exhaust fumes and long walks …

    So it's basic, simple but lovely!
    The food is great! The lady who runs it (Maria) is so lovely she's agreed to come live in England with me! Dinner at night is pretty cheap but so amazing! She's made the stay so fun! The rooms are shared between 4 which makes it feel more like a hotel, you share a bathroom between that which is nice to not worry about 180 other people using it!
    It does feel like a little hotel with the open doors all the time and vines covering everywhere!
