Pico do Papagaio‎, Ilha Grande

This mountain on top of Ilha Grande is fairly back breaking in the heat but the results are worth it. You follow the well marked T13 to the prison on the far side of the island until you find the turn off onto a rough but still regularly marked path. The forest stays close until right at the end when you emerge on to the ‘Parrot’s beak’ for stunning views of the whole island. Take lots of water.
