Most beautiful place I've ever been to. Be ready to get a workout in. That's the reason this beach is the most beautiful beach in the world.

Nice beach, a bit overrated? Not sure if it deserves the best beach of the world title. It depends of course on the waves and tides but I have seen better, even in noronha

It's so beautiful. It's actually even more than you can see in the pictures. Getting there is part of what makes it so special. You'll need to go down this trail through a huge wall of rocks. Once you hit the bottom and look up,...More

More than the beauty of the site, it is the fact that the island is super protected and the number of tourists limited to approx. 500 a day on the whole island. This makes your visit on that beach feel like a Robinson Crusoe !

how much does it cost to fly there from sao paulo

Response from Travelling C | Reviewed this property |
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
