Bonete Beach, Ilhabela

4.6
#1 of 23 in Trails in State of Sao Paulo
Hiking Trail Beach
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.

  • To get to the Río Negro, are two options, by boat or trail. To go down the path I recommend that the person is trained, well conditioned. Is a track pulled with enough rocks, climbs and descents. Demands of the body, is not a simple track. The landscape is sensational, in the Woods, is a beautiful thing. Another thing to watch out is that, we found many bugs along the way, mainly snake. Should never rest sitting on the trail, and don't walk alone. Take cover of black flies, and take lunch. Are at least 13 km walk. Coming in, the beach is beautiful. The sea is angry (depending on the season), the sea is blue, so wonderful. Is a village of locals, all natural. And has waterfalls around. We went and back on the same day the trail. It was pretty tiring. To go gave 3-and-a-half hours. Is to come back were 4 and a half hours (we were already very tired) lol Super recommend! Go to track, adrenaline. Have the option of returning by boat tbem, and there are several Inns on the beach.

  • I was unprepared for the trail with my sister, first track we did in life and we didn't know it was 4 hours of trail Ilhabela. We started the track knowing that was going to be on a beach (just told it was the bonete Beach, one of the most beautiful in Brazil). TAKE MONEY because few places pass card, of course I didn't know that too and almost had to sleep on the beach because there's money for the boat back hehehe. After all, I will definitely go back to the beach with all the family and make the trail again, not to be missed. the trail has very beautiful waterfalls, nature changes every second, seems to have gone out of a book and the beach seems to cancun without the resorts.

Where to stay in Ilhabela

With much of the island protected against overdevelopment, all but a handful of accommodations are found on the western coast of Ilhabela. There, upscale hotels with plenty of private grounds lie to the north or south of the main town. Look in the town itself for the main budget-friendly options, with characterful pousadas (guesthouses) the most popular option. The island can be pretty busy during peak seasons (especially summer, December to March), so booking ahead is essential. With the mainland so close, you can easily hop on the ferry back to Sao Sebastiao to sleep.
