Ilha Grande – or Big Island – is Rio’s nearby tropical retreat. It is a 30-minute trip from Angra dos Reis, a small coastal town about 150 kilometres away from Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro. The island is defined by white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, forest trails, and a distinct lack of cars and roads. In short, it is a slice of Brazilian paradise Enjoy the privacy and exclusivity of a private island in Angra dos Reis with a private speed boat at your disposal and a full staff to attend you. Experience all the water and nature activities.
