Float in the clear blue water and sink your toes into the soft, white sand of Ilica Plaji. Relax in a lounge chair under an umbrella after swimming in the warm water, which is heated by the thermal hot springs under the seabed. Restrooms and showers are available for a fee, and beach and watersport equipment can be rented, although you can also bring your own equipment to the beach. Nearby parking is available, but this popular beach gets crowded quickly, so parking can often be difficult to find. Be sure to bring warm clothing, as the beach is known to be windy throughout the year.

The beach is very long and wide, but the sand is not the cleanest. The water, though, is very warm. There are usually waves, because it's a windy beach, but the entrance in the water is plain, so the waves aren't a problem. In some parts of the water there are stones or shells that you can step on and hurt yourself,so some water shoes are recommendable.
Best public beach in Alaçati, clear water, fine sand, not crowded (except very high season), and very close to city center. No entrance ticket needed, there are bars around to eat something, toilets, showers, etc. If you go by car, you can easily park in the neighbourhood around.
