Bonete Beach, Ilhabela

(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I didn't do the trail for lack of preparation and time, say they have a hard time, and average looking from the sea to the likely way, I have to imagine that must be pulled. I used the service of flexboat Batucada which cost R$160 (roundtrip). We sought in front of the village and took some 50 min Bonete, with stops en route to see some interesting points, such as caves. The beach is very pretty, always empty and with extensive strip of sand. Has shadow and get a day of extremely calm seas. In the corner of the beach opposite the river has a restaurant with a good snack and beverage options; serve lunch and also accept credit cards. It's worth taking a walk through the village and go to the pit bottom, a stream with waterfalls of icy water that serve to take the heat of a walk from 600, 700 m rising. In the back of the pit, come down the path that leads to the other side of the beach, where flows the stream-have more shadow and you know the whole extent of the village. The flexboat left at 4:30 pm when the black flies begin to attack without mercy. We find dolphins and turtles in both ida and in the back, we got some wind against the back and reached around 6:00 pm in the village, with a stop at Perequê to disembark passengers. It's a whole day trip, take water, sunscreen and insect repellent. Bring your garbage back with you. I commend the staff of the Batucada (we went with the boatman Juninho, super attentive)

  • Worth the 1 hour trip of Flexboat. We feel a little in Jurássic Park on the way, when it skirts the coastline in the piece where there are no more road and buildings. And after arriving, we feel a little on the lost island. Very cool. The well is a delight to the Fund: a natural pool formed by waterfall. Worth leaving the beach and walk there, to bathe in fresh water and cold. Oh, who likes to take surf board.

  • Medium difficulty track, around 4 pm. Very nice beach, with shadow and waterfalls nearby. It is possible to rent a boat to make their way back.

  • Tem que ir!
  • Ótima praia
  • Praia extensa de areia branca e águas limpas, com ondas pequenas, pouco movimentada e com alguns quiosques. Vale a pena fazer a trilha para conhecê-la.
  • Praia calma e tranquila, ótima para família e tem um quiosque que serve petiscos, mas prepara o bolso. O acesso é por trilha que sai da praia da Lagoinha de aproximadamente 50 minutos. Leva câmera. Tem botes que cobram para fazer o percurso. Do lado direito da praia tem água doce.
  • Peguei uma trilha na praia da Lagoinha, lado esquerdo passando pelo rio, trilha tranquila, nesta trilha, passei por várias quedas dágua, pequenas praias, lugares bacanas. No caminho, algumas casas, um pequeno restaurante, nesta altura algumas dúvidas e descidas, chega na praia pequena do Bonete, show, areia clara, água doce, sombra e um mar lindo, vale a caminhada.
