Tips for Itineraries in Ilhabela

– There are 40 beaches in the archipelago, some with restaurants and bars. For many of them access can be by car or circular bus. In some cases, only by boat, 4×4 vehicle or walking trails. There are 14 in the channel and all the others around Ilha+Bela on the coast.

– Light hike to the magnificent Cachoeira da Lage or to 300 other waterfalls already mapped. For some it is necessary to have an adventurous spirit!

– Baia de Castelhanos and Cachoeira do Gato: worth it! Access is normally made by 4×4 vehicles or speedboats, but motorcycles, prepared bikes and the more adventurous on foot can also go (heavy trekking). If you prefer, take the tour with the island's jeeps, the agencies will pick you up at the hotel.

– Schooner trip to Praia da Fome and Jabaquara, far from the buchicho!

– Rent a sailboat or speedboat and go to more distant and isolated points, such as Saco do Eustáquio and Baia das Anchovas.

– Scuba diving in sunken ships. There are dozens around the island.

Adventure Island Eco Park, where network hosts Velinn Hotel and Inns have special prices.
