900 m (0.6 miles) off the coast of Porto Belo and surrounded by calm, crystal-clear water, is the beautiful nature reserve of Ilha de Porto Belo. A well-marked hiking trail through the lush flora leads you to amazing panoramic views, and along the way, your guide will show you different native species of both plants and animals. To learn more about the history of the island, you can visit the small “ecomuseu”, with its interesting display of archaeological and biological finds. Back on the white sand beach, the island’s restaurant serves up regional food with a fresh contemporary twist, and you can also rent equipment for diving, kayaking, and waterskiing.

  • Did the tour of the port of Pirates with landing on the island, very beautiful and well maintained, a big squad takes care of everything, very organized. Calm water and clean well, I thought it had too much algae in the water that tree, legs, but that's really sea. The view from the restaurant is spectacular.

  • Wonderful place. But the farm is surreal. Don't let bring food and you are required to pay R $150.00 for a lunch at the restaurant or pay R $25.00 per 1 sandwich with lettuce leaf, 2 tomato slices, filling the request and fries. Absurd. 1 can of Skol costs R $10.00, being that the cost doesn't come out by R $2.00 in any supermarket. Anyway. Inhumane exploitation.

  • An island within easy reach for the "King of the nautical port, was charged 20 reias (including the back), good boats for the crossing, very quiet. Arriving on the island we were delighted by the natural beauty and various local fun options. Has stand-up, kayaks, boat tours, and etc. I recommend arriving early, as usually fill and has little sand to acomodasen all. There is a restaurant with a la carte dishes like portions and snacks. All well separated. Pirate ships usually stop there, so have many tourists Argentineans, Paraguayans, Uruguayans. Music on site, bathrooms clean and wonderful beach. Is very worthwhile! I recommend at least a visit. Be back soon

Where to stay in Porto Belo

With the municipality's settlements largely located by the water, the vast majority of the area's accommodations cluster in the coastal towns of Porto Belo and Bombinhas. In both, you'll find quite a diverse selection of grand resort-style complexes and villas. Simple guesthouses here offer budget rooms, while the bigger resorts charge more for sea views and amenities. A couple of taller, straightforward hotels have been built in the last few years, offering basic rooms at fairly low prices, but they lack the character and charm of some of the older buildings.
