The climb from Cacimba do Padre Beach is a bit rocky, so watch your step! My favorite spot on the island, and personally my favorite beach ever. Great snorkeling, calm waters, and extremely clear! Went back twice on a short 4 day visit. Tip - If you go during high tide, you may not be able to reach the stairs... More

Rocks to walk on and natural pools to soak in make this bay an interesting visit. At the low tide it is possible to swim and snorkel. Very beautiful bay.

Baia dos Porcos is not the best beach on the island but well worth a visit. The advice is to get here quite early in the morning before it gets crowded. But the best part is not the beach it is the hill top between Porcos and Padres with a beautiful view over the two beaches and the ocean.

I liked it, no doubt, about it. Crystal clear water, a bit of a rock...in order to reach these sites you always have to do some efforts...

Scenery, diving, people fantastic. Stayed at a small B & B for 3 days and had such a relaxing time I did not want to leave. Definitely going back

This beach is next to Baia do Sancho but you can get to it without the IBAMA card. There is no access from there to the Sancho beach though. This beach has a lot of rocks and access to the water can be tricky particularly if there are waves. But if you get into the water, the snorkeling is great!... More

Great place to snorkel (with possibility of seeing turtles) with difficult access only on low tide. Another beach well worth the effort.

When you go to Sancho, same walk way, just keep walking more 5 minutes and you will take one of the best beach pictures of the world!

The view is astounding and on a clear day you can see turtles and all kind of fish, it is really amazing. Our daughter of 9 has become a fan of diving thanks to Porcos!

Great tranquil beach, great rock formations on the sea. Dont miss the restaurants at the entrance that sell the fish done on banana leafs. Really good. There is a small trecking pasageway that takes you to the next beach that is rochy but great for snorkeling. Incredible views to the rock formation from the trecking road.
