Best places for snorkeling on the island?

Hey guys!

I will be going to Ilha Grande in September and I have been looking for the best places for snorkeling, but can't really find anything but Lagoa Verde and Lagoa Azul. I am looking for places that I can hike to from Abraao.

I plan on doing the hike from town to Lopes Mendes beach (which if I'm correct will take me to Praia Palmas and Praia do Pouso as well). Are there any good places for snorkeling on any of those three?

I am not looking for a boat tour, I want to go snorkeling from the beach on my own :)

Thanks guys!
