For the people who want to be alone and quiet that's not what you need. Food everywhere brazilians who make a lot of noise, who drink a lot and eat a lot ... Too many tourist

Fome beach is reached only by boat, it is a small and gorgeous beach with emerald green water, it is actually a jewel you shouldn´t miss when in Ilhabela.

We took a boat tour to this beach (Maremar tours highly recommended). It was a small beach but I highly recommend visiting. There was only one vendor on this beach, he only had beverages and he only accepted cash. The water was clear and perfect for snorkeling! Definitely worth the visit!

Small but beautiful beach with a very authentic feel. Bring bug repellent! A few nice spots to do some snorkeling. There is also a nice freshwater pool and a vendor selling cold drinks. Only accessible by boat or a very long hike as far as I know.
