Abraao, Ilha Grande, Brazil Cruise Port

Looking for a picturesque, unspoiled getaway for your next vacation? The cruise port of Vila do Abraão, Ilha Grande, Brazil boasts a rich history (such as being the home base for pirates and an infamous penitentiary) while also providing modern facilities and fresh, flavorful cuisine for today’s tourists. Most of this “Big Island” – located off the coast of Rio de Janeiro state – is perfect for eco-tourists, thanks to a lack of roads and motorized vehicles. Instead, this is a hiker’s paradise, featuring close to 100 miles worth of trails that connect the island’s villages, beaches, and waterfalls. For those who can spend more than a day here, camping is also an excellent way to stay close to nature, with multiple options available in Abraão. Listed below are a handful of our favorite experiences when cruising to the port of Vila do Abraão, Ilha Grande, Brazil:
  • Once a prison and now one of the island’s best beaches, Dois Rios is fewer than four miles from Abraão via dirt road. After swimming or sunbathing, check out the prison ruins and Museu do Cárcere to get a sense of the area’s somewhat notorious past.
  • Take the trail that begins at the eastern end of Abraão’s town beach to reach Praia Lopes Mendes, which some consider Brazil’s most beautiful beach (or rent a boat, if time is an issue). This is where the sparkling white beaches overlooking the Atlantic Ocean meet waves that are great for surfing, with boards available to rent.
  • For wildlife adventures, companies such as Lanchas Ilha Grande (also called LiG Lanchas) and Ilha Grande Tours get you onto the water, complete with fabulous views and diving/snorkeling opportunities.
  • After a long day of hiking, what better way to relax than with a bone-melting massage? Check out Namaste Terapias Corporais, which earns raves for its therapeutic properties as well as ultra-relaxing atmosphere.
