Not too far from Baia do Sueste, even possible to walk, is this gem of a beach, its well worth to walk down from the Caracas viewpoint, and not just to take photos from above. Good waves, sometimes dangerous currents, but nice to swim, no jellyfishes, no sharks, no coral stones, just fine smooth sand inbetween your toes. And if... More

This is a beautiful, private and quiet beach that I recommend for sunbathing. Going into the water to cool off is great but trying to do much else is difficult in November here because of the strong cross currents. Bring plenty to drink, snacks, sunscreen, etc as there are no facilities of any kind. Because of how secluded and private... More

We were the only ones at this beach. Absolutely no one else, the water is crystal clear, with lots of waves, my son had lots of fun playing on the surf, my husband walked to the end of the beach and enjoyed it. The sea is strong, so children an adults as well, should be very careful!

This is a windswept beach with great views. You may not even walk down to the beach proper, since swimming here is risky. But the views are great. There are two other sites near there, one of which a fort. This is well worth the visit, since you get to see the wilder side of Fernando de Noronha.

This is a wild, deserted beach at one of the ends of the island. The ocean is rough, but one cannot beat the colors of this landscape. A must!

Very nice beach setting. If you get luck, you might find the beach only for yourself. Nice place for snorkeling during the afternoon. Plan to bring water and food, if going to expend the afternoon.

This beach is beautiful, and nearly deserted....you feel like you have the beach to yourself. We went at high tide which was not good for snorkeling, waves were large and it was choppy. There are no services at this beach and you need a buggy or taxi to get there. It is also a hike down to the beach from... More
