Ilha do Mel (‘Honey Island’) is located in the Brazilian state of Paraná. The island is at a distance of about 100 km east of the state capital, Curitiba. The island may be reached by a ferry from the historic city of Paranaguá. A large part of the 2585 hectares is protected area; the minor part is very popular among tourists from Brazil and from abroad. From Paranaguá, the visitor may opt for two destinations: Encantadas or Brasília. Form Brasília a light tower (‘farol’) may be visited, as well as some beaches. The route to the tower follows an unpaved path along a large number of pousadas (hostels), souvenir shops, bars and restaurants.
