Ilha Canela, Palmas

4.2
#2 of 10 in Nature in Palmas
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.

  • Nice place, good for cooling off, drink and eat. Prices a bit salty, but worth it for comfort. Good service. And cleaning and great organization.

  • We went on a Thursday and it was pretty empty. The service wasn't the best, but the ride was worth it! The journey by boat is nice (10 min) and it costs 25 reais two excerpts. The portion of Arapaima was good! Missed an up on site, since I was a little sick care (for example, spider webs on the table).

  • Simple restaurant with very well done Fish, snapper, tambaqui and pirarucu. Ice-cold beer with simple structure and good on the River with the view of applause. On Sundays fish boats, jetski, is the point chic in heat.
