Caiçara Turismo Ilhabela

Trail from Bonete to Castelhanos

A challenging but unforgettable 2 days hiking trip with remote beaches, waterfalls, natural pools and native community-experience !

On the first day, we start our 12km hike towards Bonete, through the beautiful Atlantic forest, along the sea. On the way, we’ll stop and swim at 3 different waterfalls (Laje, Areado and Saquinho). Your guide will learn you a lot about the wildlife and the flore of our unique island. Don’t hesitate to ask questions, we love curious tourists !

After a challenging 5 hours hike (might be less), you’ll spend the night in Bonete, at one of the pousadas owned by one of the native Caicara people. Enjoy this beautiful pristine-water beach and the quietness of a sky full of stars at night…

On the second day, early morning, we start our hike towards Castelhanos. A challenging but rewarding 16km hike (7hours), through the deep Atlantic forest and passing by three beautiful, wild and remote beaches (Indaiauba, Vermelha and Mansa).

Once in Castelhanos, we can either bring you back to the agency by boat or by jeep, or you can stay overnight there and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches of Brazil while meeting the traditional fishing Caicara community living here for generations.

A challenging but oh so magical rewarding trip within the National Park…
