Sunset beach

A great place to relax and watch the sunset. A humpback even decided to put on a show before the sun went down.

Nice small(ish) beach. Only beach we found in Fernando de Noronha with chairs and umbrellas. There is a nice natural pool in the right side of the beach with crystal clear refreshing water.

Lovely little beach at the end of town, defiantly check it out. There is a historical spot there where a natural spring is found. Recommend visiting while in town.

This beach is quite rocky and a little less conducive to swimming than some of the others in the area. Still stunning to look at and worth a visit.

This is the beach you want to go to when you are looking for a lazy day in the sand or in the water without snorkling or surfing. It has a great resturant area but also a little further away enough open area to settle with towels and enjoy the view. The view from the shower is among the best... More

an extremely small beach compared to the other, at least. It might be that most of the tourists stay here...

This is the only beach with cabanas and straw umbrellas. Still it is very much worth going there! You have to go down a long flight of stairs to the rather small beach. Snorkeling is good, water clear. There is a kind of shower and bathrooms up the stairs. The food at Bar do Cachorro is decent. Near the top... More

This beach is not as well known as Praia do Sancho or Baia dos Porcos...and maybe this is for the best! We discovered this small beach because it was the closest to our pousada, walking distance. What a good surprise! The beach is protected from waves, wonderful colors of the sea, cristal clear water, rocks on both sides to allow... More

The bar/restaurant just above the beach provides good finger food. The beach itself not very spectacular but for rock divers this is a place you can practice your jumps (pretty dangerous into a small basin though). Wait until 11pm for some real nice forro dance music...
