I stayed in a "Pousada" close to the Praia dos Cachorros, and the day we arrived and walked to the beach we became witnesses of the hatching of sea turtles! What an experience! And on our last day I went out snorchling and had some great time watching a "Jack" fish hunting. I have virtually spent hundreds of hours of... More

It is a nice place easy to go walking from the center of Fernando de Noronha, calm beach where you can rest and enjoy.

We loved this big and open beach. You need a vehicle to get there unless you fancy a 20 minute walk down the bumpy track that leads from the main road. There is a small beach bar behind the beach which also has an outdoor shower. The beach is long and beautiful and a nice place for sunset.

It is the in town beach. There will be many more people here, perhaps the most crowded, but easy access and in town, a nice beach tho, we prefer more quiet.

Located in Vila dos Remédios, it's within walking distance from the fortress and the church. The easiest to get to in Noronha.

Beautiful small beach, a bit of steps to get there but it is worthy. The water is just perfect as it is all over the Island.

The most interesting thing at this beach is the bar on the top with a very beautiful view. It's not a beach to stay all day.

We caught a nice sunset our first night here. It's near many pousadas down a rocky road and then another path. It's a little bit of a challenge to walk back up especially at dark, but a nice spot for a sunset. There is also a restaurant overlooking the beach if you want to eat there instead. Not much sand...

This is a beach that can be reached by bus. We stayed at a pousado del Alberto so we could walk. It was secluded and very clean.

I loved going over to the right and jumping in the little pool with the locals! Easy enough access. Waves are not too intense.
