Baia dos Golfinhos, Fernando de Noronha

4.8
#9 of 21 in Parks in Fernando de Noronha
Baia dos Golfinhos is sublimely beautiful with its striking landscape, lush vegetation, and bright blue water, but that is not its main appeal. For centuries, schools of spinner dolphins have been coming to the stunning bay and, from atop the 50 m (164 ft) cliff, you are almost guaranteed a sighting of some resting in the cove after a night of hunting. Research biologists from the “Projeto Golfinho Rotador” organization monitor the animals daily and readily answer questions. They will even lend you binoculars for a better look.

  • The trail to the Baía dos Golfinhos is opposite the trail that leads to the Sancho, but during the Ilhatur, generally, doesn't matter for this location. This track is very quiet, made a wooden DAIS. The view is great! To see spinner dolphins that come to the Bay, it is necessary to arrive early (the opening hours is 6:30). On site, there are binoculars available. A researcher of the Spinner Dolphin project helps us to locate and view dolphins, in addition to explain behavior of these animals. I saw dolphins from a distance but, even if I hadn't seen it, just for the view is worth the visit.

  • We offer an incredible ride in a boat with underwater vision. We start from the Museum of sharks. We could see the bottom of the sea with its colorful fish and Sealife wide of the place. We appreciate a great turtle in its Habitat, swimming peacefully. And the dolphins accompanied us jumping and playing. A unique experience! I recommend to all who visit the island! Excellent care, predisposition to teach about the place, transmit the love and passion for the island we will return

  • The trail to the Dolphin Bay is opposite the Lookout trail two brothers and longer, but with many lookouts with look amazing. Very little exploited for lack of signs and indication by the local guides. Worth a visit!

  • Beautiful view towards the golfinhos Bay, where you can have a better chance of seeing dolphins. A very good choice is that you can borrow a few vinoculares on this viewpoint. Another option is to follow path on the right hand side to go through several viewpoints of 'praia do sanchos' and at the end you can enter to the beach. I recommend to take: snorcker to observe the variety of marine life, water for the hike and CAP or hat.
