Ilha Anchieta, Ubatuba

(4.7/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • The island and their stories!! Rico ride into knowledge. We went to schooner to the island where we were greeted by local guides that tell the history of the island, where he still maintains the former public jailhouse. The place has an amazing energy and the beach is beautiful walking down a trail there is still another beach. Worth going to!

  • Nice place, good for snorkeling, beware of the maréias. Good instructors, crystal clear water, clean sand.

  • The Anchieta island is only accessible by boat that is in itself an attraction, but it's worth it for the historical collection, consisting of the ruins of an old presidio. Oh, not to mention the wonderful beaches.
