The island is fascinanting, has really good beaches and restaurants. The park is worth visiting. The best way to get there is by ship (there are many companies that offer this). Nature not damaged at all

A good day on the beach the Atlantic side of the island is accessed via a Jeep trip through the rain forest. An experience well worth the trip. We were advised not to eat the fried food which I think was good advise.

Great park, amazing forest. Best way to see it is on a Jeep tour and I would recommend using Maremar tours, the biggest and best in town! Waterfalls can be reached by several different hikes, but most of them (the hikes) are quite a way off the bus routes.

Where: Outside of São Paulo Brazil about three hours time.
How: You can go by car via Dutra with friends/yourself or you can travel by bus via the Tiete station via Litoranea costs about R$54 and takes 4.25 hours. Litoranea takes cash as their website is stubborn for credit card
Remember on Ilhabela the merchants including guides really operate off of the local currency (brasilian R). Hotels take credit card and some places to eat will take debit or occasional credit but this is a hard driven cash economy. Best to bring some then use a debit card if need be (make the hotel resrv. on credit to save trouble)
On the island: walk, bus (R$3.10) or take a cab ($30 average so try the bus or place yourself at a hotel located near things you wish to see). Southern buses are more frequent. The Northern bus (Armacao) takes you to the historic center then all the way to the Northern Lighthouse (see a map).
Meals: run about $R40.take advantage of buffet breakfast at your hotel if its included in your price!
This island has a West and East aspect to it. By this I mean the West side is the historic center, small shops, kite board (North), kayak, etc. The main on the West side has a bus that travels and stops along the way on the hour and ten min mark. You can grab a boat from here with many agencies for tours or choose to go by land with a guide as well. There are a few waterfalls with marked handicap access. Call ahead to check the details.
East side : is the preferred swimming beach side with state park. There is a 40 min road (advice-hire the guide its easy) across to Castelhanos beach and the park itself with trails.
This is an island to spend a few days at! There are over 100 waterfalls, there are trails, hotels keep pools, saunas, etc, so between the parrots that freely roam, the trails, some dinners, and relax you need this on your list. You cannot beat the nature aspect of this place. The representation of maritime forest here percentage wise for Brasil is staggering. Make the time!
