We walked one way and got the boat back. The walk/hike took around 3 hours and is clearly sign posted. It was probably the sweatiest we have ever been, but did make the sight of the white sands and blue water even more amazing! The hike is hard and tiring, you do need proper footwear and not flip flops as you are scrambling up and down very steep jungle hills at most points, you get to cross 2 other beaches as well which is nice. The beach itself is beautiful - very picture perfect. If you walk up to the far end you could easily have 100m of beach to yourself. There are five or so little stalls selling crisps, drinks and sandwiches (these sell out quickly) but no toilets. The boat back, which only goes to the 2nd beach due to the shallow waters of Lopes Mendes - and then is a 20 min walk through the jungle, was 20 rs if bought in advanced (when arriving on the 2nd beach) or 25 rs if bought when you wanted to leave. The last boat goes back at 7pm. Would recommend a trip to this beach by boat or foot as part of any visit to the island.
