Saco da Capela Beach, Ilhabela

(4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
The flat sands of Saco da Capela Beach make for a pleasant walk, with the many moored boats bobbing in the water, and plenty of bars and restaurants by the waterfront. The oily, dirty water, however, will make you think twice about dipping your toes in. As the main mooring area in Ilhabela, this is the place to come to rent a boat or other nautical equipment. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Saco da Capela Beach and many more Ilhabela attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Ilhabela vacation builder.

  • The beach is beautiful, but not recommend to bath. The location, the view, the kiosks, hotels and etc are pretty cool, but wouldn't recommend for bath. There is a large concentration of boats moored there, leaving the water a little weird for a bath. Over the weekend I was there, the signs of CETESB indicated that water was not suitable for bathing. For those who like to watch the boats or just admire the beauty of the sea, I recommend!

  • The beach has a very handsome, but I didn't think it was suitable for bath. There are many boats and the water seemed to stop, without minimum signal wave. There were a few pipes that come out under the sidewalk, forming a type of stream to sea water, causing bad impression.

  • Well attended, with good kiosks, hotels and restaurants in the surroundings. More parking available (problem in Ilhabela). You can walk to the historic centre.
