State: São Paulo City: Ilhabela Region: Southeast

Ilhabela is in fact an archipelago formed by small islands. The biggest and most important is called “Ilha de São Sebastião”, but usually people reffer to it as Ilhabela anyways. It has marvelous beaches and a great atmosphere, relaxed but also sophisticated. 

It is told that the European pirates used to get hypnotized by this marvelous island craved in the south eastern cost of Brazil, only 230 Km away from the city of Sao Paulo. In fact, there are 21 wrecks around the island, which is a great diving spot, with clear waters and a marvelous sea life. 

It also has an exhuberant atlantic forest with several waterfalls and trekking options. 

The strong winds which blow from the São Sebastião channel gave the island the nickname of “Nautic Sports’ Capital”. In July, it hosts one of the most important Brazilian championships: the sail week.

Ilhabela also has a cozy downtown, the “vila”, with several stores, restaurants and an interesting architecture.
