Day party in Ilhabela: Sea Club

party sceneDay clubs are popular in cities around the word like St Tropez, Miami, Vegas, Ibiza, Marbella etc.  The concept of a day party is still new to Brazil; so if you  like day parties and happen to be in Ilhabela you are in luck! Combining beach, pool, music (from international DJ’s), gastronomy and drinks into a luxurious environment is Ilhabela’s Sea Club.view
When I first walked in my reaction was ‘ Vegas Rehab pool party at the HardRock meets the beach’ it definitely doesn’t feel like you are in Brazil!  There are camaruche’s for groups (think VIP area/ bungalows), day beds/comfy lounge chairs scattered along the pool deck (see pool below), and out on to the beach as well as 4 bars.pool
We paid R$280 for 2 of us to enter and that covered some of our bar/food expenses.  The system was a lot better then the usual Brazilian bar cards; you put money on your card/wrist band when you enter and as you order things they deduct from what you have already paid so when it’s time to leave there is no waiting in line or settling the tab you can just go (something you don’t get to do very often in Brazil).

 The food was excellent, from the regular finger foods like pastels and fried calamari to salads, sandwiches and larger fish plate options.  We had the burger and chicken club with fries, I’d recommend both!buga e dexterz

Sea Club is only open the 150 days a year, during the summer season so make sure you plan your trip accordingly. Heinekens ‘Summer Stage’ brings known DJ’s from around the world , check out DJ’s Buga and Dexterz video below, awesome how they incorporate real instruments into their mixes (check him out on the violin).

For an awesome day party in Ilhabela have a blast at Sea Club!
