State Park · Nature / Park
An island located off the coast of Rio de Janeiro State, Ilha Grande State Park is known for its scenic beauty. Largely undeveloped and entirely off limit to cars, the only way for you to explore the island is on foot. Over 150 km (93 mi) of hiking trails criss-cross the lush, untouched rain forest, connecting the handful of small coastal settlements with the tropical beaches, mountain peaks, and waterfalls. One of the most pristine remnants of Brazil's Atlantic rainforest, Ilha Grande State Park holds some of the largest remaining populations of many endangered species, including the red-ruffed fruitcrow, the brown howler monkey, the maned sloth, the red-browed Amazon parrot, and the broad-snouted caiman. The waters surrounding the island feature a unique convergence of tropical, subtropical, and temperate-zone marine life, where you can observe corals and tropical fish alongside penguins and Southern right whales.

  • Amazing. For me it's the most beautiful place on the island
  • Beautiful national park with loads of untouched jungle. Good trails with both long and short routes. Lots of people around but if you leave early there's very few people on the trails. Nice beaches to cool of after hiking.
