Praia Da Feiticeira, Ilhabela

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Beach
The beautiful and exclusive Praia Da Feiticeira is an ideal place for you to relax, with its small, warm pools in the shade of coconut palms. Completely isolated but for an entrance through a stone walkway, there are no facilities on the beach, which adds to its unspoiled tranquility. With only 250 m (820 ft) of sand, the beach is small but with so few visitors you will find it cozy rather than cramped. The rocks at the side of the beach are a hot spot for fishing, and, while waiting for a bite, you can look out over the azure-blue ocean and see the lush forests of the mainland in the distance. Dominating the left end of the beach, you will see the former Fazenda São Mathias. According to legend, the original owner amassed a great fortune that he had his slaves hide before killing them all. When he started going mad, local fisherman branded him a “feiticeira”--sorcerer--and he eventually disappeared, leaving behind a namesake for the beach and the mystery of buried treasure.

  • Try praia do Julião only a few hundred meters further south. It is a nicer beach with a few rocks in front of it where snorkeling is a nice option.  more »
  • This small beach doesn't have a bar or any infrastructure like bathrooms, and that's how it keeps its charm! Just for the experts about Ilhabela!!! Try the caipirinhas and sandwich snacks sold by Dona...  more »
