We are located in a not very known region to common tourists, the Ubatumirim wilderness that has a large natural, cultural and ethnic diversity. Our tour suggestions will let you unveil this richness, providing contact with the nature and the traditional communities, in a harmonious and respectful way.
The entire Bananal Ecolodge infrastructure was planned to be integrated to the landscape with harmony and respect. Our spaces use techniques of natural construction and are designed to activities that aim to encourage the region´s protection, collaborate with the sustainable development of the community and give you many reasons to always want to come back.
Bananal ecolodge is located in the Ubatumirim wilderness, north region of Ubatuba/São Paulo, just 30 minutes away from Paraty / RJ, in the region of the green coast, where about 80% of the natural landscape is still preserved, and remains one of the last untouched areas of the Atlantic Rainforest.
It is surrounded by the Serra do Mar State Park, in 20 hectares of Atlantic Forest reserve, by the shore of Ubatumirim river.
The lush greenery can been seen along the whole coastline which has more than a hundred beautiful beaches, some with great surf. Islands appear on the horizon, while inland rivers and waterfalls complete the majestic scenery. The region has a huge biodiversity and all around you can see the beauties of nature.

Surf conditions in Sao Paulo- Ubatuba :
Air Temp (°C)
Peak season for tourists is December to March. April is the rainiest month, Dec is the driest. Surf is year round
Due to the quantity of beaches in Ubatuba, you won´t have a problem finding a good surfspot, and since the area is kind of a wave magnet, there´s consistent surf year round, although it is during winter when bigger waves show up more frequently.
The most coveted gem of the area is Itamabuca beach. It has an awesome right hander that peels down from the point, but due to the quality of the wave, this spot gets very busy. The good news is that Itamambuca is very long beach, so you will have no problem walking down the beach and finding a good sand bar.
Another place you shouldn´t miss is Felix beach. Apart from being a beautiful beach, with the forest trees just a few steps from the ocean, it has got probably the most perfect barrels in Ubatuba. On small days, it also a great place for beginners.
While you´re in Ubatuba, if you´re feeling adventurous, try and hit the road to Maresias, Gabriel Medina´s local break, and experience one of the most consistent and powerful waves in Brazil.
