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.

  • This track is a lot of time, but tiring. In total five hours of hiking. Every two miles more or less have waterfall. In total there are 3 waterfalls, q is great for you to pull yourself together. Note If you are going to do the trail and back on the same day, I recommend the boat ride. It's kind of inhuman return of Parking trilha...rs > > > left the car at the beginning of the trail, in a House, we paid $15.00. Food > > > takes about 4 bottles of water, if you finish filling in the waterfall. Bring food light, snack type flour, peanuts, Brazil nuts. Clothes > > > Put clothes light and tennis. Trail > > > is a spoil disabled, so is "croctopus" tickets confirmed, has no difficulty level and don't miss. Just move on! Restaurants > > > restaurant there, some accept card, but it's always good to get money. In the first restaurant I don't recommend, my card has not passed the beer wasn't cold. Boat back > > > 2 in, they charge R$ 75.00 per person, if you have from 4, charge R$ 50.00 per person.

  • Quiet, happy people, good food and simple.. walk on sand silence.. astral a lot!!! I went by boat and spent the day only, but certainly want to go back and spend the night. Very beautiful!

  • The beach is too beautiful, white sand and transparent water. Super clean beach, because people who arrive there, have an awareness of how hard it is to take out the garbage (junk) from a beach that you only get access via boat or trail (on the road). Besides the beach, there is the river that flows on the beach and doing this way across the River to the beach is awesome. Very cold water!!!

  • 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.
