Nice day at a very peaceful friendly beach

Nice surroundings and friendly people at this public beach - parking is limited but we'll worth the walk

I was worried about previous reviews saying how crowded it would be. While the public part was slightly crowded the DPNY beach was very open. The water was clean warm and calm.

Very popular beach - calm and clear water, good to hang with a larger group. If you're looking for a more reserved/calm option this may not be the best option.

Nice beach but too crowded. Go on a Monday-Thurs. Probably the 3rd or 4th best beach that you can easily access on the island.

Beautiful, clean beach on Ilhabela with calm, clear waters. I visited the beach in March and it was not crowded. Incredible sunset looking towards mainland Brazil. Definitely worth a visit.

A great beach, very clean, both the sand and the sea, a lot of places to eat, stay and park. Didn't have any problem there, relativity warn water. Do not forget your bug repellent. Totally recommend, both the beach and the city.
