We loved our visit and saw quite a few turtles. The pool is a bit challenging to get to because you need to climb over rocks and the tide can be a bit challenging when you are getting in and out but once you are in it is great!

Baia dos Porcos is a bit of a hike but well worth it when you get there. The view of the rock formations is spectacular. The water is pristine and so blue. The sandy beaches are to die for. I can see why they say 5 of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Brazil are on Fernando do Noronha. Don't... More

The climb from Cacimba do Padre Beach is a bit rocky, so watch your step! My favorite spot on the island, and personally my favorite beach ever. Great snorkeling, calm waters, and extremely clear! Went back twice on a short 4 day visit. Tip - If you go during high tide, you may not be able to reach the stairs... More

Rocks to walk on and natural pools to soak in make this bay an interesting visit. At the low tide it is possible to swim and snorkel. Very beautiful bay.

Baia dos Porcos is not the best beach on the island but well worth a visit. The advice is to get here quite early in the morning before it gets crowded. But the best part is not the beach it is the hill top between Porcos and Padres with a beautiful view over the two beaches and the ocean.

I liked it, no doubt, about it. Crystal clear water, a bit of a rock...in order to reach these sites you always have to do some efforts...

This beach is next to Baia do Sancho but you can get to it without the IBAMA card. There is no access from there to the Sancho beach though. This beach has a lot of rocks and access to the water can be tricky particularly if there are waves. But if you get into the water, the snorkeling is great!... More

Great place to snorkel (with possibility of seeing turtles) with difficult access only on low tide. Another beach well worth the effort.
