Juliao Beach, Ilhabela
(4.4/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
After following a hidden trail, you will emerge from the dense forest onto Juliao Beach, a beautiful white sandy beach with clear, calm water studded with huge, semi-submerged rocks. Close to the shore, these form secluded pools in which you can fully unwind. Paddleboards and kayaks are available to rent on the beach, and you can explore the two small islets not far from the beach. As nesting ground for seabirds, access is prohibited but donning a snorkel, you can dive beneath the surface and see an amazing display of tropical fish, turtles, and rays. The friendly owners of Prainha do Julião make delicious seafood risotto that you can enjoy, listening to their eclectic selection of CDs.

  • Beautiful view of the canal and beautiful stones at the corners. Small, but well frequented by families. Calm seas, but no tents, only one restaurant that offers portions during the day and dinner (c/p/sea view).

  • Small beach has no mta structure, quiet, but it's worth it to enjoy the scenery and relax. There's a restaurant and some stalls in the sand that provide drinks and snacks.
