Sete Fontes Anchieta Island State Park Praia do Presídio
The Anchieta Island State Park was created by decree Nr. 9.629 on March 29, 1977. Nature and history form the scenario of one of the most important state protected areas. The Anchieta Island State Park in the county of Ubatuba is managed by the Forestry Institute, organ of the Environment Agency of the State of São Paulo.

With an area of 828 acres, the island holds a rich fauna of the atlantic forest where animals like Capybara, Nail-monkey, Tamarin, Racoon, Skunk, Lizard, Sloth and Armadillo live in their original environment. Scientific researches confirmed the presence of 50 species of native birds.

In the cristalline waters surrounding the island, shoals of fish like mullet, snook, mackerel, sardine, flying fish and sea turtles are found in great numbers, protected by a no-fishing zone . In the State Park it is absolutely forbidden to camp, fish or angle, retrieve from the shoreline any kind of flora or fauna, collect seedlings, cut plants, take pets or open trails through the forest.

Those who are willing may tour the existing trails on the island. Rugged shorelines surrounded by the Mata Atlantica lead to the Praia do Sul beach. The island enchants the visitors with its seven beaches. The trail of the Prainha is 530 meters long . It connects the Praia do Presídio beach to the Praia do Engenho, where huge rocks form a natural pool in the sea. Several forms of marine life can be seen in its clear waters.

The access to the island is done starting at the Saco da Ribeira inlet.
Schooner tours starting from the Itaguá beach are available.
