Atalaia Beach, Fernando de Noronha

4.5
#6 of 21 in Parks in Fernando de Noronha
Part of a national marine park, Atalaia Beach invites travelers to explore its aquarium-like shallow natural pool, the largest one on the island. Nestled in a cove protected by a reef, the beach features a narrow strip of land covered with soft golden sand and round black stones, evidence of the island's volcanic history. Though snorkeling in the 40 cm (16 in) deep pool at low tide is ideal for beginners, experienced snorkelers may find it not stimulating enough.

  • Beach with fantastic pools. For visitation schedule is required at the ICMBio with limited number of people. Necessary to use the vest, mask and snorkel for diving.

  • There are two trails, walking up to the natural pools of the Watchtower and lasts 40 minutes and the long trail, q passes through other pools and ends near the port, q takes 3 to 4 hours depending on the pace. Both are beautiful, but the look of long's more impactful.

  • Atalaia beach is gorgeous, with a short, but with a fresh marine life amazing. We saw several fish, crabs, fish and even a snake Moray (but don't have to be afraid ", most people plunges and if u don't mess with them, nothing will happen). A very nice experience.

  • Best place to see the fauna de Noronha and maybe even a baby shark. It is necessary to schedule the ICMBio. It is prohibited to use sunscreen. The trick is to go from tennis to trail that lasts a few minutes and 20/30 bring sunscreen to pass on back.
