This beach can be hard to get to if it's raining and the road is too muddy, but it's worth the drive through the park to see it. It's peaceful and quiet.

Nice beach but the sand fleas destroy any kind of joy. In Ilhabela it seems that the beaches near the villages are the best bet.

Wonderful beach but it takes awhile to get there by car. Mosquitos are horrible but the sand, water and view are great.
