We got up early twice in hopes of seeing this incredible thrashing of 1000 dolphins we had read about but they did not come either day. We were also there for sunset one day and that was magnificent. The views from the viewing site accessed through Sancho Beach, are worth the 20-25 minute hike along a very well maintained path.... More

It is absolutely breathtaking! Our first day on Noronha we took a boat ride around the island. It culminated with the Baia dos Golfinhos.

Just wake up soon enough and run to the observatory to see one of the most beautiful landscapes on the island. And, of course, just take a binocular and you will see a lot of dolphins down there!

This place is side by side with sancho. Big beach...blue water, I did not see the dolphin when I came here, only sharks and turtles. So it is depends on your luck also whether you will got to see the dolphin or not. It will be better to take the boat tour as you will see the dolphin (if any)... More

Incredible, how many dolphins are swimming in this area.. on top of a hill and long walk distance, some guides are there and will help you to watch the dolphins, give you tips and explanation of the life of this animal. they have also extra binocular so that you get close to them..

A short walk in the bush from Praia do sancho, but absolutely worth it. The views are amazing - even though we did not see any dolphins.
