You cannot go to Fernando without either taking a tour to see this beach or venturing out on your own. It is paradise. Crystal clear water and beautiful surroundings.

Most beautiful beach in Brasil and perhaps in the world. From the view point over the beach the view is fantastic and the beach is very root. The access is a problem for olders and children.

You go down two vertical ladder inside a rcok and emerge onto a verey beautiful beach. Nothing to do but enjoy the surf and relax. But it's enough.

Enormous sea turtles, small sharks and barracudas, as well as several different species are always seen here, no chance not to spot them while snorkeling

Must do snorkel in the hole island. Turtles and Sharks are easy to find. Don´t forget your GoPro to review the best possible surface dive experience ever. Lifeguards vest is a must. Everything easy to rent for a bargain over there.
