Known for large sea turtles, the visibility is not always perfect, but it is easy to get to by bus, 3 rs. one part requires mask snorkel fins and life jacket, available to rent on site, very inexpensive but part of the park so you will need you park pass, 178 rs each for 10 days at time of writing.

They say it is a very rich place in fauna and flora, therefore you must use a lifejacket to ensure you snorkel only on the surface. Maybe I was unlucky, but the place was so crowded that it was impossible to see anything underwater. Inform yourself with other snorkelers how is the water before actually spending money renting a jacket.... More

It's not my fave, but there are facilities over there - toilets, showers, a small shop and a kiosk selling meals, drinks and ice cream. There are guides who take you snorkeling, if you fancy watching sea turtles (it's not sure as eggs they'll show up, though).

All the Island Tours go there at the start to do some snorkeling. Is the beach I liked the least of all of them. Protected by the reef the water isn't nice. The visibility in the water isn't good either. Anyway they bring you there to see the marine life but I didn't see any.

Go early in the morning and hire a guide. For 60 reais (80 reais for two people) he will literally drag you to the best spots. In our one hour visit we saw countless turtles of all sizes, numerous colorful fish, lobsters, octopi and even a good size shark. The water is not cold at all.

This is the place to see sea turtles very close and other fishes, perhaps a shark! Calm and clean water.

This is the most convenient, hassle free place to snorkel. I saw several colorful fishes. What is unique to this snorkeling location is that it is very easy to see turtles and sharks. Sharks swim across the shores and you may not even need a snorkel to see them! I recommend taking a guide as they know where to find... More

The island has lots of great beaches, and maybe we had better weather when we visited here, but it was our favorite beach. It was also the only beach that seemed to be safe to be in the water as the waves were gentle and shallow. You could bring kids to this one and let them go in the water.... More

Take this suggestion: If it's windy try another beach Easy access (we did two trips (buggy and bus) from anywhere on the island Sunny day light wind had great viewing of lemon sharks and tons of fish... really no flora or fauna there.... snorkeled both times.... straight out about 100m+ is sand/rock shallows for even better viewing Last visit windy...
