Beach sights in Ilhabela
- Sort by:
Of the sheltered beaches on the north side of the island, Praia Jabaquara is recommended; it's accessed by a 5km-long walking trail. On the east side, where the surf is stronger, try beautiful Praia dos Castelhanos (good for camping and surfing), which is backed by the steeply rising jungle. From the town of Borrifos you can take a four-hour walk to Praia Bonete, a windy surf beach lying on the southern side of the island that you will share with a local community of fishermen.
