Guess what? Ilhabela is also named and spelled Ilha Bela - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Ilhabela is part of São Sebastião and is the most visited São Paulo State island. With rich history and preserved architecture in its central area, the island has become one of the best-structured cities in São Paulo State. Its tourist attractions are mainly a tour to the little centre of the island, boat trips, and sail classes as well visits to the amazing beaches on the west side of the island that are all accessible by car or bus.
The centre of the island is located to the north once you arrive at the island, where there are plenty of really good options for food, shopping, bars, and nightlife. The island centre is where the city has a church, a park, and a neighbouhood full of restaurants -- all of which are installed in old construction to keep the colonial architecture, which looks amazing.
Nightlife is a good option for those who search for fun and there are plenty of options with different approaches. Mainly with a walk in the historical centre, you will find the best option to go out at night -- just go with the flow. There are options for all night long and there are even big and very famous nightclubs there.
In the south of the island are the most preserved beaches, like Bonete, which is only accessible by trail, and Castelhanos at the east side accessible by a four-by-four trip, which is a good adventure choice. These are the best choices for those who search for a travel approach based on nature with no risk of disappointment. No matter where on Ilhabela you want to visit or what you would like to see, there is an Ilhabela hostel to suit you.
