#14 of 68 in Things to do in Ilhabela
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Plan your visit to Rua do Meio and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Ilhabela vacation builder.

  • I expected more of Middle Street, the reviews I read here. It is even okay, but there's nothing there, just the bar São Paulo. The cool thing is what's around. The Middle Street in yes no big deal.

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.
