Full description
Meet your group at the meeting point in Abraão, and depart for a full day in nature. During the day, make four stops at different beaches, each around one hour. The first beach visited is Aventureiro, boasting about 1,640 feet of fine silver sand, a shallow and consistent bottom, clear water, and rough waves. On the left side, where there is a small pier for mooring, there is also the most famous coconut tree on Ilha Grande, the iconic "coconut tree lying,” and a small natural pool.

Head next to the beautiful Praia da Parnaioca, one of the most isolated beaches in all of Ilha Grande. Facing the Atlantic with its yellowish and coarse sand, the sea is rough, deep, and offers little shade in its 3,380 feet. At the west end, the charming river Parnaioca flows, forming a small lagoon on the beach. In Parnaioca’s heyday, the river was much more voluminous to the point where it was often impossible to cross. 

Meros is a small, isolated beach with rough waters which often lead to the formation of sand dunes. It is possible to see traces of ancient civilizations that inhabited the island around 3,000 years ago in geological vestiges known as amolares. The sand is so white it appears as if a huge mirror; the water that flanks it produces a unique spectacle, a mixing of green and blue with pristine white.

Maguariquessaba Beach is of great extension and beauty. With a generous strip of soft sand, it hosts preserved Atlantic Forest, consisting of coconut and almond trees which guarantee nice shade. Its clear, greenish, warm waters make snorkeling a mandatory activity for those looking to be enchanted by the seabed and its inhabitants, which include starfish, corals, and turtles. It is one of the most developed beaches of Enseada do Sítio Forte, lined with inns and restaurants frequented by visitors to Ilha Grande.
