A tumultuous and unsavory history has kept Ilha Grande relatively undeveloped and free of the trappings of the modern world.
Ilha Grande is known for beaches, nature, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take a peaceful walk through Tropical Forest, enjoy the sea views from Castelhanos Lighthouse, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lopes Mendes Beach, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa Verde, Ilha Grande.

For ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Ilha Grande online route planner.

London, UK to Ilha Grande is an approximately 21-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from London to Ilha Grande.
