10 sharks just chilling....

We were so lucky to sit and watch about 10 sharks enjoying the warmer water in the bay playing around with each other. The went around the corner to see the small shark museum.

Went there with our jeep tour and had a nice look out, took some great photos. He had a somewhat inappropriate story to tell about the site...translates to "Rachel's Hole" and as my name is Rachel, everyone got a good laugh. :) Fun sculptures and a quick walk up to the Chapel if you're keen.

It's a beautiful beach and great sightseen. It's a must see in Noronha if you have time. Good to wake up early and check de sunrise.

The beach is not so special to me. Basically nothing to do, just see it from the top and listen to the story about raquel. The view is beautiful but not really amazing, you got nothing to lose if you dont come to this place
