Praia Da Feiticeira, Ilhabela

(3.9/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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, quiet beach with calm waters and great choices of parts and rent chairs/umbrellas. Recommend the shrimp portion of the "first flag", is very well served with good cost-benefit ratio.

  • The beach is very nice not fall for children. Good to spend the late afternoon to check out the sunset. The path is a little weird, with a dirt road barely care and then a walk between high walls of the properties.
