This is not a beach for swimming...dirty waters. The restaurants are nice and the view. One may even spot a wale. Not a quite place, full of people.

As most of the beaches of Ilhabela, this is a beautiful beach, but it can be a bit crowded. Here you find some of the nicest beach bars and restaurants. Expect to be charged a bit more for food and drinks on this popular beach.

Nice beach, the water is clean, no large waves, several bars and restaurants. I was there around Carnaval, too many noisy groups but that was expected.

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. The most incredible sand with flecks of gold in it. Would definitely go...More

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.
