  • Is very worthwhile! Of course, for those who like history rs there are several ruins (troop Barracks, guardhouse, Prison, etc.), access to the trails of the guns of the second world war, gazebo, even a chapel of Our Mrs. of the fortress.

Where to stay in Ilha do Mel

Ilha do Mel's accommodations lie within the villages of Nova Brasilia and Praia do Farol, just south of the island's thinnest stretch, and the village of Encantadas, located at the island's southernmost tip. You'll find a good range of budget and luxury options in each, with campsites and simple guesthouses farther inland, and upmarket resort-style accommodations usually enjoying beachside locations. Many of the island's places to stay operate only during the summer peak season (December to March), so do check the availability before making plans.
