This is another beautiful beach on Fernando de Noronha. It is in the park so you need a park ticket. The overviews available on paths around the rim are beautiful. If you have the energy it is worth walking all the trails on the rim to visit the overlooks. Access to the beach itself is accomplished via some fixed ladder... More

I heard about this place before, saw some pictures, but when you see it with your own eyes it's something else. Simply amazing. The water it's perfect, saw many fishes using snorkel over there.

If you like to snorkel this is the place. The water was clear and the fish were beautiful and colorful. I was there 2 days - the first day had a swell but we still enjoyed it and the second day was even better. Absolute beautiful

They say this is the most beautiful beach in the world. I am not sure about that, but definitely it is the most beautiful spot in the island. You only have access to it after paying a local tax that also allows you to visit the others beaches from the National Park. Brazilians citizens pay R$ 89 and foreigners pay... More
