Caxadacobeach with its stunning cove

SURF'S UP!

A three-hour walk from Abraao through dense vegetation, Praia Lopes Mendes is an extensive beach on the North side of Ilha Grande, extremely popular for its perfect surf and climate. I wasn't ready for a surfing lesson yet, but feeling semi-

adventurous I did hire a bodyboard and rode the waves for about an hour. All that walking and bodyboarding had ensured I was not going to walk back another three hours, so I took the easier option - a boat ride back to the south of the island, clinging on to

dear life as the boat rocked against the strong, wobbly waves of the open seas. Returning back to Abraao for another night of debauchery - as always, including great food, the amazing caipirinha (caipivodka with cachacha instead of vodka) and a street forro party!

On my third and final day on the island, I took the trekking farther and visited Caxadaco beach, which is a seven-hour trek back to base. This is perhaps the remotest but most wondrous beach of Ilha Grande - the cove is so enclosed that it almost feels like a lake, with just a small, perhaps less than 200 meter opening, into the sea. As I looked back at the majestic island from the catamaran, preparing to head to the main coast town of Conceicao de Jacarei, I made a promise that I would return. Of course I kept it. Twice!
