Bonete Beach, Ilhabela
(4.7/5 based on 650+ 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 visited here in early November. We decided to walk there and back and, in hindsight, I would not recommend this. It is a very long way over tough terrain. I would suggest walking there and getting a...  more »
  • Everyone said it was a trail of 30/40 minutes however stake with a child it took us almost 2 hours to arrive, we were literally eaten by black flies that same crowded repellents in swallowed, the waterfall is small and not worth even a little

  • 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.
