Viana Beach, Ilhabela

4.0
#11 of 39 in Beaches in Ilhabela
Rocky, verdant, and cut off from reality by a line of coconut trees, Viana Beach comes close to being the picture-postcard tropical beach. Small, pastel-painted houses and upturned boats hide among the trees at the edge of the thin beach, adding even more color to the scene. If the sun gets too much, take cover under one of the parasol’s belonging to the beach restaurants.

    Small but very charming Beach, the restaurant is on the beach and serves the best soft-shell shrimp of the island

    Choose the best beach on the island is difficult, because all are perfect. Praia do Viana is one of them. As we were with our youngest of seven years we chose the perfect place. Super service at the local bar kiosk. Provide tables and chairs. The ice-cold beer, the shrimp great, too. All this with a view of lush and being able to observe the puppy all the time. It's worth a lot of the day at the beach of Viana. Important Tip: get to 9:30 Easy to spot the car and tables available.

    As beach, too bad since little area of sand, with some rocks. Quiet sea, fine, for small children is good because almost a pool. But for those who want to "get Jacarezinho" doesn't seem to be a no. However beach clean.

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.
