Speed Connection - Very beautiful beach! Unfortunately we did not get any waves as small in summer. Warning: Do not go to or from Ilha Grande with company called Speed Connection! They offer combined service for ferry and taxi to or from Rio de Janeiro. Girlfriend and I paid 100 Reais and never were picked up at ferry terminal. Tried to speak with the guy on the phone. He was obviously scamming!!!! Shame as island is amazing!
