Cabras Island, Ilhabela

4.5
#1 of 9 in Nature in Ilhabela
A little gem of a getaway, Cabras Island is a snorkeler’s dream. You can rent gear on the island and the staff aren’t picky about where you use it, as long as it's returned intact. Reef fish populate the waters that surround the island, swimming in schools and hiding among the rocks that make up the island’s foundation. Arrive in the morning to miss the crowds, then you can enjoy the beaches and greenery in peace. Rent a kayak and paddle your way around the island to get a view of the coast before heading inland for a snack. Make Cabras Island a part of your Ilhabela vacation plans using our Ilhabela trip itinerary tool.

  • We took a public bus and taxi from our cruise ship to the beach (Praia das Pedras Miudas). There we rented a two person kayak. We stored our street clothes in a secure area at the kayak rental...  more »
  • We took a cooler, some beers, one speaker and made it a great time. There is some tables and chairs so you can also do a picnic.  more »

  • Amazing beach, calm and relaxing, with shower and a restaurant right there, you can rent a kaiak, diving equipment and lots more, also perfect to stay with kids
  • The diving was pretty mediocre, not something I would recommend. Visibility was quite bad, not really that many fish. We saw a turtle from not too far away but because the visibility was so bad I was not able to see anything more than just the outline. There is a statue underwater that I'm assuming was placed there for tourists, it's really not that impressive at all. Overall, would not recommend.
