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

In my opinion, the most beautiful beach in Fernando de Noronha. It is almost desert, so you feel you own the place. Carry your water and snacks, because there is nothing to buy there. If you can, swim to "ilha da Viuvinha" to see the animal life under water. If you are lucky, you can also see Tubarão-Limão (we were... More

One of the larger beaches of F.d.N. We saw a huge shark shortly after entering the water and snorkeling towards the closest island to the beach. It ended our bathing fun abruptly on that day but we went back after recovering from the shock a few days later.

Water is too rough for swimming. Nice photo location. Need a ride, Although only 30 min walk from Pria do Sueste, it's tough in the sun.

One of the most beautiful beaches that i've ever gone. I don't recommend to swim there if you aren't an expert swimmer. A brazilian project called TAMAR cares the turtles that go there to reproduce and you can even watch their birth in especific times.

You can have this beach on your own as not so many tourist come to this beach. Better to be seen on low tide so can see the combination of reefs, sands and the color of the water in one picture.
