Aracatibinha Beach, Ilha Grande

4.3
Aracatibinha Beach is tucked away on the southern side of the island, where you can camp and enjoy the sea away from the usual beach crowds. The sand here is golden and soft, and the water favorable to kayakers and sea turtles, which delight small children when they swim right alongside them. Huge rock formations are scattered across this sand, which visitors often use in place of diving boards. You can also use these warm stones as your personal sunbathing platforms. Spend a day in the cool shade of tall palm trees, or make this spot your headquarters as you explore the area’s other beaches, trails, and villages. Take a look at our Ilha Grande day trip planning app to schedule your visit to Aracatibinha Beach and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

    Beautiful beach, loved the scenery and not to mention the fish. It's not good to eat around there ... great to take lots of pictures.

    Beach in the Cove of Araçatiba. Small beach next to Pousada Green Life. Walking about 10 minutes. Recommend

Where to stay in Ilha Grande

The village area by the dock is home to the largest number of Ilha Grande's accommodations, with options varying from family-run, rustic pousadas (guesthouses) to mid-range and luxury hotels. Elsewhere on the island, you'll find upscale resorts offering wide-ranging amenities, such as swimming pools, bars, restaurants, and spas. Though most lodgings lie along the coast, a couple of options farther inland situate you in scenic parts of the jungle interior. Alternatively, head back to the mainland to sleep at one of the simple hotels in Conceicao de Jacarei, the destination of the Ilha Grande ferry service.
