Ilha Canela, Palmas

(4.2/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Cozy and private, with a secluded beach favored by families with kids, Ilha Canela offers a view of the entire city, which the locals claim is best appreciated at sunset. This artificially-made island rises out of calm lake waters and is a frequent site of family picnics. Children enjoy swimming in several areas set up for them in the warm shallows. Adults can choose from several popular bars, with tables and chairs set up right in the water, so you can enjoy a cold drink without ever having to leave your own spot in the lake. You can also visit one of many food stalls serving roasted fish with rice and fresh salad, considered to be a local delicacy.

  • Just to get to the island by boat. There's good food and refreshing water environment. Good to spend a few hours.

  • Without doubt the best beach of applause. You arrive on the island by boats at the pier of praia da Graciosa paying r $25 round-trip. The beach is surrounded by networks to protect the bather of piranhas, has sun loungers, tables and there is a bar/restaurant serving from snacks, drinks to meal. Has bathroom and showers. You can spend hours and hours in water or lying just enjoying the laziness. Could handle a little better cleaning, there are a lot of spiders and webs on part of the loungers, the people tbm doesn't really help people q were at the next table tossing empty beer cans on the floor. But waitresses struggle to keep everything in order.
