About Ilhabela

Ilhabela is Brazil's largest island and offers sailing, diving and surfing opportunities beyond those in most of the region. There are dozens of gorgeous beaches, waterfalls and miles of forest to explore. For visitors with more cosmopolitan taste, there are also any number of shops, restaurants, cafes and nightclubs.
