We went during winter and the beach was not so crowded. There are several bars and restaurants available but they all are kinda pricy for what they offer.

Beautiful beach, but there are so many people there!! There is not much room between tables and the beach area is small, if you want to hang out in the sand.

Great beach in Ilhabela. Nice golden sand and good clear waters. It can get quite crowded but there is enough space. There are also food and drink options so no need to bring your own stuff unless you want to. Definitely worth a visit.
