this was the only beach we found on Noronha that had amenities like food, bathrooms, umbrellas for rent, and snorkeling gear for rent. you'll definitely see at least one giant sea turtle while snorkeling. people often report seeing multiple turtles and sharks...I found that the water was kind of cloudy so visibility wasn't great...I didn't spend too much time venturing...

Sueste has a lot of algae, so very first layer close to the beach is dark. However, if you go further you get to see a lot of animals. We paid 40 reais to a guide for each person to take us there and completely worth it. We saw turtles and sharks, it was an amazing experience, probably one of... More

While this is supposed to be one of the best, I think the others on the island compare and some even outclass this one. Boldro and Bode to name 2. Go still is a fantastic beach

Had a wonderful time walking along the beach and snorkeling with the turtles here. This is a protected area for them, and you are very likely to see very many of them. With a little luck, you may even see a shark! A member of our group spotted two sharks during our free dive, but we only saw the turtles.... More

The beach itself is so so, but the beauty of Baia Do Sueste lies underwater, where you can snorkel with sea turtles and small lemon sharks. Very beautiful!!there is a bar where you can rent beach chairs, a parasol or buy refreshments and snacks.

This is a very nice beach and the one with best "support" in the island. Regular bus line takes you there for R$3, in front of the beach. There, they rent snorkeling equipment, chairs and sun umbrella, and sell sandwiches, fruit salad, pastry, soft drinks and juices. Reasonable price. The beach is large enough, and divided in three parts: you... More

We drove here in a hired buggy. It's a long way from the town center but the public bus stops right at the beach. There is an IBAMA kiosk where you need to show your card to prove you paid the marine fee to access the beach. Then they roped off parts of the beach for research and for guided... More

Snorkeled at this beach and saw baby sharks and turtles swimming around. The marine life is abundant and this was probably the best beach I've snorkeled at.
