More than the beauty of the site, it is the fact that the island is super protected and the number of tourists limited to approx. 500 a day on the whole island. This makes your visit on that beach feel like a Robinson Crusoe !

Absolutely wonderful! And at least three other beaches in Noronha should also be among the 25 best of the world, in my opinion. If you have the chance to visit it, don't miss it!

It was purely a holiday Trip with wife amd kids. Most amazing place to visit as I heard so much about that, and when we reach there it was simply a remarkable and I must say Heaven on Earth place. Stay, Food, place and peoples around were so amazing, that I love to go there again in my life.

This is a beautiful island appro. 400 miles off the coast of Brasil. Absolutely beautiful! There is another beach on the island "Pria do Dolphin" where history records that the survivers of the Vespucci wreck swam with the local Dolphins - we did too! I was there in 1982 +/-

Everything you read about the beach will pale in comparison to actually experiencing it. We were on the island for 5 days and visited here twice. Be sure to pack water and snacks as once down on the beach, there is nothing and access is very tricky vi two fixed ladders and a steep set of stairs. Access is impossible... More

It's definitely worth a visit! Take towels though and be careful if the waves are big. It's a beautiful beach non the less.

Definitely the most beautiful beach at the Island! You should go in a dificult trek not accessible to the wheelchairs. The snorkeling really worth it! Turtles and sharks are always on sight!
