Ilha Grande

World heritage site · Beaches · Bodies of Water
A tumultuous and unsavory history has kept Ilha Grande relatively undeveloped and free of the trappings of the modern world. Originally inhabited by pirates, then housing a leper colony, then a prison, the island's paradisal charm has ironically been preserved by the ugliness of its history. Today, the picture looks brighter, with restaurants, bars, and guesthouses clinging to the island's pristine beach areas. Tourism in Ilha Grande has been relatively slow to take off, leaving much of the natural features unsullied and uncommercialized. Except for emergency services, there are no automobiles on the island, meaning that travel is on foot or by boat only.
