Gruta das Encantadas, a cave located at the southern end of Ilha do Mel, is the subject of many local myths and legends. It is said that ages ago mermaids became stranded inside this cave, and unable to leave due to rough seas, spent years enchanting travelers with their sad songs. Hence, this "Enchanted Cave" is located on the "Enchanted Beach." Today, a wooden walkway leads through the large main opening to the first chamber of the cavern. This entrance is most easily accessible during low tide, so time your visit for early morning hours. Hire a local guide to take you there, and be sure to bring your camera and lots of insect repellent. To visit Gruta das Encantadas on your trip to Paranagua, use our Paranagua itinerary builder.

  • One of the fastest tracks we got on an island to get a nice attraction. just 10 minutes and you meet the sea and a beautiful view of the cave. Too bad most days the Paraná is cloudy. And the sea is with a color fill the eyes.

  • The Enchanted cave is located on the beach outside the charmed ones and is an amazing natural attraction. You can only access the interior of the cave at low tide so look for visit in the morning when the tide is low.
