Escaping mainland Brazil for some island-hopping…

The stunning beaches of Ilha Grande…

When visiting Rio escape to the beautiful island of Ilha Grande for a different side of Brazil, a tropical paradise where the beaches are jaw-droppingly beautiful and you can hike through the lush jungle to waterfalls with the sound of exotic birds calling. Just 150km from Rio, TravelBella reached these stunning shores by public bus and hopping onto a ferry and stayed in a cosy and simple posada that backed onto the lush green of the rainforest. Pick up a cup of chocolatey and refreshing açaí en route to the beach for a cool dip in the clear blue ocean before taking a hike up to a waterfall. Finish your day with a caipirinha and some fresh seafood as you watch the sun go down…
