Praia do Sino, Ilhabela

4.0
#7 of 51 in Outdoors in Ilhabela
Praia do Sino is noted for shallow, calm waters and white sands surrounded by coconut trees and tall palms. Kayak or snorkel in these peaceful waters, or fish alongside local fishermen. They have been known to catch stingrays, but you can try for something smaller, of course. Nearby are ancient rock formations, which have become legendary for a bell-like sound, produced when one rock hits another. A walkway can take you right up to these huge stones. Bring a hammer, a useful tool if you want to tap the rocks and hear the famous ringing of bells. You can also walk a trail to the south of the beach, where a clear stream flows straight into the sea.

  • Clear and calm waters makes the beach a grace Bell. Was nun weekday and was very quiet and easy access. Very repellent and Tip: lunch at the restaurant that is across the Avenue, not on the sidewalk near the beach. The service is great and the food is amazing and cheap.

  • Tranquil sea and practically no waves, which is great for kids. Has some kiosks, but we ended up opting for Bell's restaurant believing that there would be a better structure ... Unfortunately the service left something to be desired and the food, well dude by the way, wasn't worth it. Attention to black flies that almost lead us! Insect repellent is essential item.

  • Very quiet beach, familiar environment and very good for children, has a deck around the stones that yields good pictures, is worth knowing.

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.
