One of the nicest beach of Fernando de Noronha. Good to sunbathing. Nice to swim as well. Different sea colors.

Difficult access to reach the beach because you have to climb down a steep ladder. Much easier to book a boat trip.

This beach is really amazing. Protected by the curvy cliffs the beach has a golden sand and turquoise water. It is quite good for swimming but not for snorkeling. The access to this beach is through PIC Golfinho- Sancho and then there are iron ladders...More

To achieve it you play Indiana Jones stepping down a stairs in a cave. Pure nature only a few visitors because no restaurant and this is unique. Very nice snorkeling place.

as you have to climb down a ladder to tjr beach, this beach is always nearly empty - at peak times you will still rarely see more than a hundred people there - if you go early (opens at 8am), you'll have it to yourself!...More

It's a wonderful place. To get there you have to make a light trail but it is not tiring and the view is wonderful. I recommend you to spend a couple of hours there.

Hi, I guess you will have to count somewhere between 400-500Euros. Sounds like a lot but Brazil is a huge country. In fact, the flight takes around 4 hr 30 min including a stop in Recife. Check the websites from Brazilians... More
