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.

  • Has many wonderful beaches, all different and beautiful, with crystal clear waters, excellent for diving snorkel. The praia de Palmas dispenses fully spend so much money to visit the Caribbean, because it's our Caribbean right here in Ubatuba. Unmissable ride, it is essential to make the rented speedboat charters to meet and stop directly on the beaches, where the schooners won't.

  • Access to the island is made by boats that leave from the Centre of Ubatuba, takes 1:00 of navigation to get there and the ride lasts 2:00, there on the island has instructors that make the island and its attractions are beaches accessible 4 and the building of the prison. In two 2:00 the tour is done in a hurry, because the access to the most beautiful beaches and bathing are made by trails that lead from 5 to 10 minutes. On the beach of the machine has a natural swimming pool beautiful. I haven't been able to see more things because of the short time.

  • The island has a strong blend of history and the environment, a full ride for all ages. a good tip is to know first the beaches further away and then enjoy the rest of the day on the beach of Presidio.
