Brazil’s Polynesia

By Linda Tancs

Ilhabela means “beautiful island” in Portuguese. Discovered in 1502 by Américo Vespucio, this archipelago and city situated four miles off the coast of São Paulo state in Brazil is unique for its pristine beaches and untouched rainforest.  It also reputedly has the best shrimp in the country.  Best of all, with an average annual temperature in the 70s (fahrenheit), it’s the perfect vacation destination year-round.  To get there from São Paulo, it’s approximately three hours by car to São Sebastião and then a 15-20 minute ferry ride to Barra Velha on the island.
