Ihla Grande - Brazil


Take in these stunning drone views of Brazil's Ihla Grande island, compliments of AirVuz contributor Aerial Perspective.  Ilha Grande is located in the state of Rio de Janeiro, roughly halfway between the state's (namesake) capital city and São Paulo.  One of Brazil's largest islands, Ilha Grande covers a bit under 200 square km or around 75 square mi. For much of its history, the island was off-limits to tourism: it was a leper colony and then a top-security prison.  Since the latter closed in 1994, it's become a populist tourist spot.
