Viana Beach, Ilhabela

4.2
#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.

  • One of the few beaches of Ilhabela where you find the whole structure (parking, restaurant and even hot showers). Place for you to relax during the day, also highlight the fact that the beach won't be too full.

  • Small beach, good to go with children, and easy access, just think that the kiosk is filling too much sun Guard (even though no one sitting) and depending on where you only see Sun guard, anyway is pretty is nice and sometimes the man spoils with your greed exacerbated

  • Viana's beach is on the north side of Ilhabela. The kiosk has the same name as the restaurant in front. There is a small parking lot for a few cars. The beach is beautiful, the sea is calm and the sand is good for walking. All very clean. The kiosk is well structured, with tasty food, nice drinks and delicious. And on top of that, the service is very good. Program not to be missed for those who go to Ilhabela.

  • Small beach in the northern part of the island, in front of the restaurant at Viana. Great to relax while waiting for the meal. Calm and transparent water.

  • A beautiful stretch of sand located to the North of the island, almost zero waves which makes it ideal for families with children or elderly people. The restaurant is first class with elaborate dishes but high costs. Beer always cold. I highly recommend it.

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.
