Praia Preta, Vila do Abraao

4.3
Beach · Nature / Park
Praia Preta is a rare place indeed with its black sand, which is not something you come across too often. The warm and calm waters are ideal for swimming and the abundance of trees create a nice respite from the sun. A river running through it forms a unique combination and the natural pools of water provide an alternative to swimming in the sea. Nearby, you can visit the ruins of Lazaretto, which functioned as a prison and a quarantine for sick people during colonial Brazil. Take a look at our Ilha Grande vacation planning app to schedule your visit to Praia Preta and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
