As most of the beaches of Ilhabela, this is a beautiful beach, but it can be a bit crowded. Here you find some of the nicest beach bars and restaurants. Expect to be charged a bit more for food and drinks on this popular beach.

Nice beach, the water is clean, no large waves, several bars and restaurants. I was there around Carnaval, too many noisy groups but that was expected.

Very popular beach - calm and clear water, good to hang with a larger group. If you're looking for a more reserved/calm option this may not be the best option.
