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

This beach is a really paradise. To get there you will need to pass through a trail of stones. Amazing!

Breathtaking view and nature interaction. Great for diving, and to spot exotic fishes and sea creatures.

Search for the low tide hours, and be carefull when walking over the rocks, that can be slippery when wet. It will be a lot more confortable and safe if you use some kind of sporting shoe. Other than that, you will have an incredible experience, snorkling in pristine, safe waters.

We walked along the north coast of the island along a series of wonderful beaches before we finally got to this protected bay right in front of the two famous rocks of Fernando de Noronha. We spent a few hours snorkeling in the sea. Depending on water conditions you can go between or around the rocks or even swim into... More

In February the access is really difficult to Baia dos Porcos. And, there is no sand for you to be on the beach. And, since F.de Noronha has so other beautiful places, I really wouldn't put this one among my preferred ones.
