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...

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.

You have to ask around and find out what is low tide. You access this beach by hiking during low tied from Dos Padres beach. This is not really a swimming beach except in the most ideal conditions. Waves come crashing in and can take away all the tiny sliver of sand beach to enter. But it is a very... More
