Cruises to Ilha Grande

Ilha Grande, Brazil (Photo: Scottt13/Shuterstock)

About Ilha Grande

Though not terribly far from cosmopolitan Rio de Janeiro, Ilha Grande is vastly different. The island -- which is located off Brazil's east coast -- is for the most part, untouched. It boasts spotless beaches, rolling green hills and lots of opportunities to enjoy nature, whether on the sea or on land. Visitors will find excellent surfing, diving, hiking and biking throughout the island.

Why go to Ilha Grande?

Pros:

Not far from Rio de Janeiro, Ilha Grande is home to some of Brazil's most unspoiled beaches

Cons:

You'll be hard-pressed to find any of Rio's legendary party scene in laid-back Ilha Grande

Bottom Line:

Ilha Grande is ideal for travelers who enjoy off-the-beaten path, relaxing destinations

Went to a turtle rescue project but it looked more like a mini turtle zoo and was mainly a visit to a shopping area with restaurants. Pleasant but probably not worth the drive.... Read More

We did a morning Schooner/snorkeling trip. It is a beautiful sail around the coast. The swimming was a treat but not really a snorkeling excursion. Yes there are fish but no reef so not what we are used to when... Read More
