Bonete Beach, Ilhabela

(700+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail
Hemmed in by rainforest and mountains, Bonete Beach can only be reached by a hike of several hours, or a quicker boat ride, should calm seas permit it. Away from the tourist crowds, soak in the magnificence of nature; the fine, powdery sand, the powerful waves, the ice-cold stream feeding into the sea. Hidden ten minutes up-stream you will find a small waterfall. The area is home to a friendly, native, fishing community, who run a small restaurant on the beach. Put Bonete Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ilhabela itinerary maker.

  • Suggest going to track and return by boat. The track has 12 km and how has many attractions on the way you will take around 4 hours of walking the quiet stopping to swim in the waterfalls, to eat a snack (remember to pick up your garbage), and to take photographs in observatories. Suggest going early, leaving around 6:00 am not to catch the Sun so strong in the head because the end of it all is discovered. Take water, something to eat and repellent. Has James, but nothing a repellent does not resolve. The beach is extensive, with blue water and super quiet. Great for surfing! Who likes to go to the beach to sit in the trendy drinks kiosk can forget, this beach is not for you, Bonete is for those who enjoy tranquility and Nature. I suggest closing with the boat ride, if you're not afraid, you can opt for the Canoe Caiçara, which leaves much more into account and make the ride even more exciting!
