Ilha Grande - Tropical Island Paradise

Getting to Ilha Grande

The Easy Way to Arrive to Ilha Grande!

If you are looking for an easy way to get to Ilha Grande, then take a look at the selection of Green Toad Bus passes and daily transfers which travel via the island. We offer van and boat transfers from Rio and Paraty making it easy for getting to Ilha Grande.

The majority of backpackers usually require transport to Ilha Grande from Rio de Janeiro situated to the north of the island; or they need to get from Paraty to Ilha Grande which is only 2.5 hours south. We will pick you up from your accommodation and drive you to a jetty where an included boat is waiting to take you across to the island. It will be during this boat trip where you will get your first look at the beautful tropical surrounds of the area.

You won't beleive your eyes when you take your first glimpse of the island! Just be careful because we only provide the easy way to get to Ilha Grande; but there is no easy way to leave it - you might just decide to leave everything else behind to stay in paradise forever!

Our included boat transfer arrives in close proximity to Vila do Abraao which acts as the islands largest settlement, while it also maintains its small coastal town charm. When you get to the island do not expect to find paved roads, nor even cars for that matter. Supermarket chains, banks or even good cellular/internet reception are also not present, which allows you to concentrate on relaxing and enjoying the tropical outdoors.

With over 100 white pristine beaches and over 150 kilometers of trails through primary and secondary rainforest, when you are not just chilling out your energy on the island is best spent exploring! You need to take a boat to reach the best beaches such as the famous Praia Lopez Mendes, and you also should check-out the Lagoa Azul, which is a natural pool ideal for swimming and surrounded by lush jungle.

How to get to Ilha Grande

Pico do Papagaio is a great hike up to a peak which rewards those who climb it fantastic views over the whole island. Another great hike which begins from Abraao is the Feticeira Beach Trail that takes you past some ruins of a prison before working your way up into mountain rainforest and then finally dropping down to a little stretch of pristine sand, palm trees and cool waters.

Accommodation is usually easy to find on arrival except on weekends in summer and public holidays, and at these times it is advisable to reserve early, especially around the Brazilian Carnaval period.  Although credit cards are generally accepted, there are no ATMs so remember to cash-up before going!
