Fome Beach, Ilhabela

4.4
#9 of 51 in Outdoors in Ilhabela
Ilhabela means "Beautiful Island", and Fome Beach is one of its most beautiful spots, with green water, lush scenery, and warm white sand. This beach is accessible by boat only, and out of 41 beaches on the island, it is one of the more isolated ones, offering you privacy and peace away from the usual tourist hustle and bustle. This archipelago is called "the capital of sailing'" for good reason, as the calm waters and strong winds between the main island and the continent favor many nautical sports, such as sailing, kitesurfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. You can also choose a more relaxing activity, like fishing or birdwatching.

    We visited this beach paradise, linda....de. I highly recommend repellent because she was in the middle of the Woods, and also depending on the schedule of the visit take some snacks due to the site does not offer structures such as bars or restaurants, and the ride is included in the Jabaquara Beach parade that may not always happen, especially if in low season and the restaurants are closed prepare for lunch near the 15 hours as happened in our case. The bars and restaurants were closed so we went through it and stopped at Bell's beach. Always check with the Agency about the availability of the ride because it depends on the tide and calm sea.

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.
