Ilha Anchieta, Ubatuba

(4.7/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
After the ecosystem on Ilha Anchieta began to weaken, the São Paulo Zoo released a number of species to repopulate the island. The island is surrounded by clean beaches where you may be the only visitor. Explore the lush forest and you may come across old, crumbled walls being reclaimed by vines or sight a rare bird variety that is the progeny of the zoo's repopulation efforts. The waters just off the coast are clear and offer up some great underwater viewing for snorkelers. If you’re in the mood for more action, take a hike. However, wear tall hiking boots as vipers are prevalent and bites are reported every year. Put Ilha Anchieta on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ubatuba tourist route planner.

  • In addition to the beautiful beaches of the island and the contact with fish in the natural pool, the ruins of the Presidio bring a whole historical context very exciting. Worth knowing and come back a little in time.

  • Beautiful place, the story involved on this island is impressive, has beautiful natural pools to see fish, a wonderful place.

  • Every time I go to Ubatuba we take a day to do the ride up the Anchieta island as well as the site good for shallow diving, also has quiet trails to hike, a museum that tells a little of the history of the site and a restaurant, the staff of schooners stop for those who want to dive for some 30 minutes, I recommend for both groups as families.
