FAROL À DISTÂNCIA!
A LIGHTHOUSE IN THE DISTANCE!

Back to the more "civilized" side of the island.
Again, many boats all around and all the time!
A distant lighthouse can also be seen in this image!
A bit further away, the mountains of SERRA DO MAR (SEA MOUNTAIN RANGE) that goes along SÃO PAULO's coastline, from north to south, sometimes closer to the water and sometimes a little bit distant from the sea!

I was in ILHA BELA for four times: 2005 (first time), 2007, 2013 and 2014 ! I'll be back for sure, although there are so many other places I want to visit or revist!

Once more, visiting ILHA BELA! I arrived there on december 5th and, as the weather forecast had told us, it would be cloudy and rainy in the morning, but it would be better in the late afternoon and on during the whole week-end! Fortunately, it was precisely correct and the following days there we had such a wonderful time and I fell in love with this island again!

Ilha Bela has more than 40 beaches and 365 waterfalls! It's the third largest island in the brazilian coast and the one that has the highest peaks, ancient volcanoes: BAEPI (1,048 masl), PAPAGAIO (1,302 masl) and SÃO SEBASTIÃO (1,378 masl).
It's official name is ILHA DE SÃO SEBASTIÃO (SAN SEBASTIAN ISLAND).
It's got a STATE PARK where 3% of the remaining MATA ATLÂNTICA (Atlantic Woods) of the State of São Paulo is preserved!
