One of the best beaches in the island. Views are great from top with lot of birds and trees. Reaching the beach with the vertical steps between rocks is a unique experience as well. beach itself is beautiful.

What's there to say that hasn't been said? Simply a must. Visited it through land and boat side, water is stunning, scenery is stunning. Loved it.

Great to the beach is half the fun as you have to climb down two ladders and then walk a total of 153 stone steps. Coming up is a good work out but well worth it. We went in the mornings after watching the Dolphins and all three times had the beach virtually to ourselves. It's a must if you... More

This beach is voted to be the world's finest beach by TripAdvisor's users, but is a very deserted beach. Following the paths of wood on top of the cliff, but to get down to the beach one must climb down a ladder, go through rock crevice and take the stone stairs down to the beach. All you need must be... More

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.

I wouldn't go there with the tours, because they will allow you only half an hour. You can spend the whole day skorkeling and playing in that paradise!
