Praia Da Feiticeira, Ilhabela

3.9
#6 of 51 in Outdoors in Ilhabela
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.

    Beautiful, gorgeous sunset though, as it is a beach with a lot of kills, at sunset the black flies do the party It is a beach of tombo-maybe not indicated for children-but the sea is very calm and not have any structure as stalls or bathroom Let him well rustica, which is probably your great charm!

    In the 19 century, Ilhabela had more than 200 farms of sugar cane, all with labor of slaves. The headquarters of almost all have now disappeared. The only one left is a beautiful big house, very well maintained, in the beach of the Sorceress. "Coincidentally", is this who lived the witch that gives its name to the beach. Today is a private residence, but it is very beautiful to see. The beach is a delight!

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.
