Caveira Beach in Ilhabela 

A deserted beach is usually a little explored beach, very well preserved and that requires a certain effort to be accessed. This is Praia da Caveira, on the east side of Ilhabela, a beach that can be accessed by sea by boat. 

The beach is named after a tragedy that happened in the region in 1916. According to historical facts, the English ocean liner Príncipe das Asturias sank near Ponta de Pirabura, with more than 600 people on board. This shipwreck is 100 meters from the coast, at a depth of 18 to 45 meters. A good part of the bodies of the castaways were carried by the tide to the sands of this beach, which is more than 5 km from the accident site, and that is why it is called Praia da Skull. Do you like to hear legends? So look? Legends claim that the souls of the castaways still haunt the beach and, as a result, many islanders prefer not to approach it. It will be?!
