Ilha do Mel

(4.4/5 based on 2,000+ reviews for 9 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, historic sites, adventure
Situated in the mouth of the Baia de Paranagua, scenic and tranquil Ilha do Mel boasts many natural and man-made attractions. Accessible only by boat, the island owes its tranquility to a lack of automobiles and minimal development: three small villages are the closest you'll come to urban areas here. Tourism on Ilha do Mel accounts for the bulk of its infrastructure, offering a wide range of options for outdoor escapists looking for quiet beaches, hiking trails, and characterful local restaurants and bars. The waves that roll onto the island's long sandy beaches draw a large contingent of surfers, though a taste for the simplicity of island life is all you'll need to enjoy a vacation on Ilha do Mel. Our Brazil trip builder allows you to plan your trip to Ilha do Mel and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

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.
