Ferries from the mainland dock at a cement pier on the western end of Abraão’s beach. Private speedboats and schooners dock at a separate wooden pier about 150m east.

In between the two piers lies the heart of Abraão village, with its main street, the cobbled Rua Alice Kuri da Silva, curving to become Rua Getúlio Vargas. West of the piers is the road to Praia Preta and the ruined Lazareto prison. East of the piers, at the far end of the town beach, Ilha Grande’s most popular hiking trail leads to Praia de Palmas, Praia do Pouso and Praia Lopes Mendes.
