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.

  • A very small beach as usual in Ilha Bela and accompanied by a great restaurant, all very good.

  • As any beach on the island, it's worth going early (before 10) and enjoy the tranquil beach. The restaurant and the beach are the prefect pair at Praia do Viana.

  • Is a small beach, she's pretty, but not a lot of structure, has only one restaurant in which I was not well attended, so you end up getting out of options, and there are other best beaches, doesn't pay.

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.
