A must! We found the beach even much better than Ipanema and Copacabana. The sand is softer, the water clear and there were less heavy waves compared to our experience in Rio (which was already really really good). We were here in Dec, some foreign tourists and lots of locals but overall not nearly as crowded as Rio's beaches.

We hiked to this beach which took over 2 hours. Tough hike for the first 50 minutes or so as it is uphill. Some cool views and some good exercise. Bring plenty of water and a snack for when you get to LM. There are beers, snacks ect there but prices are a bit higher than average considering where you are located!

Went here with a taxi boat in the morning, to get the nice sunshine during the morning. Waves were high, so we enjoyed some body-boarding. The beach is huge, so we managed to get our own spot - with no one else within 20 metres - or more! I also went for a run on the beach barefooted to explore the whole thing. Supposedly “the Best beach in Brazil” - I can see why. However, I am so glad that we chose to hike the way back (remember snikkers if so). We saw a group of Brown Howling monkeys up very close, amongst others.

The price for a taxi boat is now 15 reais, one-way. You can buy the tickets on the beach. You have to walk for Twenty minutes to beach lopes.

Watch out for the little sand worms/larva. They can crawl through towels and are quite nasty. Not to freak anyone out ;)

The Lopes Mendes Beach is beautiful. The open ocean created gorgeous waves and the sand put the other beaches on Ilha Grande to shame. We had to hike there, but it was worth it for the view and relaxing atmosphere.
