One of the best beaches of the island. It has everything: waves, crystal clear water, white sandy beaches and very good swimming conditions. Not to mention the trip to get there - fantastic scenery! Not good options for food though, be prepared.
We rented a jeep (with a driver) and after around 40 minutes we got there. There isn't electricity in this beach so take money with you. Because there is a nice restaurant straight when we get there. I recommend to you to try fish bait and "caipirinha de folha de mexerica and also caipirinha de folha de pitanga" I loved... 更多
This is by far, one of the most beautiful beaches I've been. The hard access make it wild and untouched. To get there either you go by a 4x4 car or boat, I got there and back by car but you should go by boat and return by car, this way you can enjoy some other beaches on the way... 更多
To reach Castelhanos, you must have a 4x4 or hire the adventure companies that offer several options in Ilhabela (drive, drive&boat, etc). It takes aprox. 90min to get there due to the rough road...

The trip to the beach was great. 4wd through the jungle to arrive at an isolated beach with a nice bar/restaurant. From the pictures we expected to be able to swim in calm beautiful water but it really is a surfers beach. The north end of the beach is a bit calmer but was still a lot of big waves.... 更多
Pleasant beach, with clean water. Nothing gorgeous or spectacular, but nice enough. Book your best jeep operator if you're going back by jeep. If the weather turns bad, the road is really treacherous. We were there after some rain and some older jeeps were stalled and looked really uncomfortable and bumpy. We had a Land Rover and were thankful for... 更多
Praia de Castelhanos is one of the most famous beaches in Ilhabela. You can get there by boat or by car. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent with you.
The trip to the beach can either be done by flex boat or jeep. We took the jeep trail. The sights are amazing and worth the 15km. Once we arrived at the beach, the service and attention received is just incredible. Don't forget your repellent, we forgot and had to buy one there for a good price of $25 reais.... 更多
As part of our trip to Gato waterfall we stopped at Castelhanos beach for lunch, this beach is awesome fantastic waves/ surf long flat beach with palm trees and not packed like most other beaches on Ilhabela, reason being you can only access this beach by 4x4 through the nature reserve and they only let a few through each day... 更多
I have gone there twice! really nice beach, service poor, good food, good price, but a LOT of mosquitos! we have gone there by JEEP, so cool, driver of Ilha adventure was really entertaining. The weather was not good so no view of the beach from the montains!
