Cabras Island, Ilhabela

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
A little gem of a getaway, Cabras Island is a snorkeler’s dream. You can rent gear on the island and the staff aren’t picky about where you use it, as long as it's returned intact. Reef fish populate the waters that surround the island, swimming in schools and hiding among the rocks that make up the island’s foundation. Arrive in the morning to miss the crowds, then you can enjoy the beaches and greenery in peace. Rent a kayak and paddle your way around the island to get a view of the coast before heading inland for a snack.

  • Goat Island is a charm on Ilhabela. Beautiful island with small beaches in front, with good structure of bar and restaurant and diving classes option.

  • The place itself is beautiful, but Park the car in season is complicated, the CTE of the island fine straight, not to mention the massive crowd and loud sound around the numerous tables on a small beach. Prices for the tours and equipment depends on the season, holidays and Vacations is more expensive, but nothing absurd, stay tuned the hygiene of the diving equipment (mouthpiece of the respirator). Off season is more enjoyable, stay tuned to park the car, fine rolls directly on the island.
