When you arrive there, take a guide who is going to drive you in the sea - they know exactly where to find all the turtles and sharks. one of you friend tried to do it on his own and was a disaster. It's really worth it. you can swim with turtles and shark, so impressive!!

This is the beach with the easiest acces, directly from te road and lots of snorkel guides that can show you Turtles. Not the most beautiful beach, actually the least... Would recommend the other beaches of Fernando de Noronha.

A beach for all. Just sit and soak up the rays, enjoy the underwater marine life, or hit the waves. Don't forget your visitor card which can be purchased in the center of town close to restaurant Flamboyant. You'll need the card for many areas under environmental protection. Very nice beach although, there are better swimming beaches on the island.... More

The beach itself is quite average, with a this stretch of sand and lots of seaweed. However, it is great for snorkeling, seeing as there are turtles, octopuses, small sharks and a great variety of marine life

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.
