Balneário Ilha Bonita

Tour Details

It is in the municipality of Bonito that the charming Balneário Ilha Bonita is located, a destination full of beauty and capable of providing unforgettable and unparalleled experiences.

The fame of Bonito, a city located in the beautiful state of Mato Grosso do Sul, has always reached the four corners of Brazil. The city is known for its fresh and crystalline waterfalls, its caves, natural pools, fauna, and flora of unparalleled wealth.

One of the greatest symbols of Balneário Ilha Bonita (Bonito) is the famous ritual of connection between man and nature, where the ringing of a bell brings countless fish of all kinds, colors, and sizes to the surface.

This is because here man's respect for the life of the fish has created a unique partnership: the fish in the bathhouse know that when the bell rings, it is time to eat, and so they gather at the surface.

A show of life that shows how a healthy and harmonious relationship between man and nature can provide incredible moments and memories. Bonito, Mato Grosso do Sul: the place where men and fish can be great friends.

Balneário is one of the most beloved destinations in Bonito and, no doubt, also in the country. The crystal clear and very intense blue water is a charm that attracts tourists from all parts of Brazil and even the world.

?? Attention, tourist!

Due to the conservation of Bonito's many natural wonders, there are a limited number of places to access the city's tours.

Balneário Ilha Bonita


Wow, what a beautiful place! I loved everything, the kiosks, the food, the recreation area, the dorms, finally perfect! A place where you can have fun with family and friends.

Andressa K.


A beautiful place. We went with 9 people and everyone enjoyed the day use.

Carlos Rodrigo


The best bathhouse in Bonito of those we visited. Clean and spacious place. It has a hostel for overnight stay with breakfast. You can bring food and drinks, and there are barbecue grills for rent. Good service. The water is clean, you can see the fish without flotation, but it is very deep and not recommended for those who can't swim very well. We loved the place. Exuberant nature.
