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.

  • The beach is beautiful, has many rocks, an incredible view. The water is crystal clear and can risk to find minnows. The problem is the "black flies" but nothing that an insect repellent wouldn't fix.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches of the island. Transparent waters, sea views and lush. Great for families and couples. If you like, has option of kayaking on a small island in front of this beach.

  • To reach this beach walk about 100mt a track with Cobbles. To get there we found the beach pretty nasty, with lots of leaf, twig, algae, didn't get into the water. The owner of the Inn said no I was lucky because the day before there had been a storm and for this reason the water was like that. Well worth checking out next time. Clean should be quite nice.
