Ilhabela is located next to São Sebastião town. You got to take a ferry boat to reach the island and then hire a boat to get there. You can get there by trekking but it´s a hell of a walk.
Great spot. Perfect right wedgy barrels. Since it´s hard to get there is often uncrowded. In a good south swell (usually during winter time) can get size and become a tricky wave, since the drop is steepy fast and powerfull. But when the conditions are on the waves here are predictable and a behind the barrel take off is a must.
There´re some awesome lefts, but the rights here are what makes this spot so special.
The spot is surrounded by rain forest. Mindblowing tropical-paradise landscape.

- Another super spot, great conditions...4-6 foot perfection for 2 of the best days of my life..Very few international surfers in these parts which makes the place that much better. The locals just ask for respect, which they deserve. If you are cool with them, they will become your best friends..If your some gringo stinking up the vibe at some incredible destenation like this you need to get packing..Respect and be humble.

- excuse me mister oliver but do you speak some kind of secret agent jargon or is it just because you're too high ? your country seems to be the last tropical paradise destroyed by monkey surfers for whom show is much more important than hability, or even, lets's say, just respect. and think about the surf as relaxation.. good luck.

Dangerous and inconsistent - Bad attitude locals, dangerous to get there (by boat or by trek) and inconsistent (breaks 20 days per year in good condittion such as in the pictures)... I'd rather go to Maresias, Camburi or Ubatuba... more options, easy access, less locals... Aloha
