Gato Waterfall, Ilhabela

4.7
#2 of 7 in Nature in Ilhabela
After a two hour jeep ride and a forty minute trek through the jungle, you will come upon Gato Waterfall. It is an ideal spot for enjoying the best of Brazil's natural wonders: a beach, a waterfall, and a jungle are grouped together here in a sublime collection of creation. When the waterfall's flow is weak, you can swim under the water and let the pressure massage you, or as the Brazilians say 'let the water wash your soul.' The locals that occupy the area are fishermen that have lived here simply, without electricity or modern amenities, for many years. They take great pride in the falls and are happy to share it with conscientious visitors. Put Gato Waterfall into our Ilhabela day trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Spectacular waterfall, since the beginning of the adventure to get to her. Quiet trail, well signposted. Best waterfall of Ilhabela

  • Beautiful place, not as hard as they say, not so easy anymore for the elderly or children. A must for the Castilians. Tip: go with time, why not the will to leave, and take repellent!
