... near the Lopes Mendes beach and after a short walk we arrived. The beach was huge! Most of the people were concentrated in one small section, where the trail to the smaller beach started, so we wandered up towards a less crowded area. We spent the day there, and managed to build a BBQ pit in the sand to cook our sausages in. It started to get a bit chilly as the afternoon passed, and we didn't want to miss the last boats back to Abraao, so we headed back ...

They're like repellant schmellant. Nom nom nom. We definitely made the most of it at Ilha Grande, first a pointless, all day trek. Followed by a night of Caprihanas that put us to sleep till midday.

... Brazilian fair but hey you are not coming here for the food
What to do
cruise - definitely recommended at the best way to see the islands
surrounding Angra. Boat cruises are available or you can negotiate with a
local boat and make your own itinerary
Snokeling in the bay - excellent visibility due to the crystal clear waters
Watch the amazing sunsets
