Sea & Earth
The perfect trip to discover Castelhanos Beach, the national park, remote beaches and the island’shores, all in one day!
We get on the Flex-boat at 11.am and head north to get round the island and reach Praia de Castelhanos, on the Atlantic side.
On our way, you’ll enjoy beautiful views of the shore, beaches, and the massive hills of Ilhabela State Park. We will stop 30 minutes at Praia da Fome, a superb beach with pristine water, where you’ll be able to swim and do some snorkeling (we’ll give you equipment).
Then, after another 30 minutes stop at Praia do Eustaquio, another must-see remote beach, only reachable by boat, we’ll arrive in Praia de Castelhanos around 2pm. There, you’ll have 2 hours to enjoy this wonderful 2km sandy beach, where lives a traditional Caicara community. You’ll be able to have lunch at one of the few traditional restaurants on the beach, or just lie on the sand, go for a swim or climb to the easy-to-reach mirador and get the famous and unforgettable heart-shaped view of the beach.
At 4pm, our guide will drive you back by jeep to our agency, through a 20km impressive and beautiful road through the national park. You’ll be back around 5.45 pm at our agency.
Tips : don’t forget to bring repellant, swimsuits, money cash (no ATM there) and warm clothes for the way back.
PS: please note that we also offer the reverse day trip (go by jeep and way back by boat), see our day trip called “Earth & Sea“.
