Cabras Island, Ilhabela

4.5
#1 of 9 in Nature in Ilhabela
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.

  • We were in March 2017, there's kiosk on the beach and some very high-priced restaurants. When we went to the beach was crowded in the parking garage don't fit any other vehicle, in front there is an establishment which offers dives above 100 reais per person. , Crystal-clear calm waters full of fish.

  • The beach is beautiful, crystalline water, the water is quiet, wonderful for children who are able to stand alone. Has Sun guard rental, chairs, and snorkelling, the view of the sunset is beautiful on this beach. Next's sale of boat trips and diving, restaurants near the beach just across the street. The hardest part is parking since it is a bit far from the beach. More is wonderful.

  • The beach is gorgeous with crystal clear water. Just take a snorkelling goggles you can without much effort to see small schools. Is a beach for fun with stand up or kayak. If you are looking for peace and quiet is not the preferred site, as she is small appears to be very full. What made me sad was the large number of boats make the crossing to the island, which is very close, with motorboats that are polluting the site, not-too-distant future fish should disappear. The crossing should be made for Canoes, rafts or even in kayaks that are not so. Worth the drive? Yes Valley, but is oh, come early reflection does not have much room for parking and you inevitably will pay 20 to 30 to stop the car:(
