We have walked beaches, kayaked, swam and (my new favourite) played beach tennis. To top it all off, the island of Ilha Grande has a network of hiking trails surrounding the island. So you drop anchor in a bay, swim, kayak or dingy in to shore, walk to one end of the beach and pick up the trail. They are generally well sign posted and well trodden. Because of the elevations here you are guaranteed to get the heart rate up and a good sweat on !.
