Description

Ilha Grande, an island that used to give refuge to pirates and slaves, is now a true nature sanctuary with heavenly scenery, thriving nature and beaches with crystal-clear water, which we admire from a typical escuna, combining relaxing moments with the fantastic sensation of being in touch with nature.



What we will see
  • Tour on an escuna
  • Snorkelling
  • Lagoa Azul
  • Praia de Freguesia de Santana
  • Saco do Céu
  • Praia do Amor


What we will do
  • We board our escuna, a sort of barquetine typical of Brazil equipped with restrooms and bar service, that makes us discover amazing beaches while entertaining us with traditional music and fresh fruit.
  • Upon arriving at Lagoa Azul, we can admire the beauty of this small bay with its crystal-clear water, corals, tropical fish and starfish. We stop for some snorkelling and, with a bit of luck, we might be able to see marvellous sea turtles.
  • We then go on a sightseeing tour to admire Praia de Freguesia de Santana, Saco do Céu and Praia do Amor before heading back to the port.
