From this beach we go through a trail (15/20 minutes) towards Lopes Mendes beach which, undoubtedly, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With its fine white sands and crystal clear waters, the beach captivates all visitors. This beach receives waves that appeal to swimmers as well as experienced surfers. It is 2.4 kilometres long and at the end it has a beautiful and clean stream, as well as a cute chapel and a mosaic by Silvio Cavalheiro in an old ship barrel.

We then return to Pouso beach in a regular flexboat.

Day 3: Ilha Grande, Brazil

We go out in regular schooner from port towards the Lagoa Azul, where we can find stunning places that preserve the wild and natural environment.

Stop between two islands. In the shallow transparent blue waters, we see the background of beautiful coral and many colourful fish that feed themselves from the people’s hand; all this makes the Lagoa Azul one of the most visited places on Ilha Grande.

We continue the tour with a stop at Freguesia de Santana Beach. Here we will visit two lovely beaches as well as the Church of Santana (1796).

We return to our boat and we stop in Japariz beach where we can stay for a while or go to a typical food restaurant in the area.
