Saco da Capela Beach, Ilhabela

4.0
#18 of 39 in Beaches in Ilhabela
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.

    Stay near the village (historic), the strip of sand is very narrow and in some parts there is a pier that skirts the edge of where you can enjoy the wonderful view of the site. The sea is crystal clear and you can see the stones at the bottom. The landscape is completed with the vessels is stationed there, and who are part of the charm of Ilhabela.

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.
