Rua do Meio, Ilhabela

3.9
Rua do Meio literally translates to “the middle road”, which is perfect considering it’s located right in the center of the town. A pedestrian street full of restaurants, cafes, and ice cream parlors is an ideal setting for a stroll after the beach. Listen to live music at one of the many bars or get comfy on one of the benches and people watch. Be sure to try the famous coconut popsicles at Sorveteria Rocha, a traditional ice cream shop. Buy a few souvenirs for yourself or loved ones at one of the many shops. Make Rua do Meio a centerpiece of your Ilhabela vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Ilhabela trip itinerary tool .

    They've got everything there. The street should not have more than 70 meters long. I thought it was bigger. In the village is all near ... is near the Church. Annex picture down the street. Worth the visit for the photo of the sunset you can do from there.

    Super hot Street walking. During the day more quiet, the evening gets too full! A smooth ride for the family!

    A site which you refers to the past with the elegance and modernity of the present day, with nice shops and restaurants as well as a mall very charming.

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.
