Ilha Anchieta, Ubatuba

4.8
#1 of 10 in Nature in Ubatuba
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Ubatuba holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ilha Anchieta and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I went on a tour of schooner, the place is beautiful and the beaches are clean, the ruins are pretty cool to see and imagine all that has happened over there? Public bathroom but has a place where at least water for sale to tourists.

  • Very nice ride! You can go from schooner or speedboat, tours leave daily normally at 11:00 (need to book, please beforehand). Can lead young children because the ride is quiet and the beach is calm (light buoy, glasses or snorkel to view the fish). Take snacks do you have restaurant structure, but has bathroom and shower with fresh water. Take insect repellent.

  • Very nice island to visit. Unfortunately, the easiest way to access the island is to go with any tour company (with the schooners), which leaves little time to enjoy the island (in my case I had 2 hours). Recommend going with the whole day free.

  • Very beautiful the island is recently and so we had the grace to see many dolphins from feeding near schooner, on our arrival. The beaches of easier access are tumbling, dangerous for children. There's a natural aquarium with large stones and fish in addition to a natural freshwater shower ~ ice cold. Ruins of the Presidio and nice story.
