Baia dos Golfinhos, Fernando de Noronha

4.6
#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.

  • A visit by boat to the Bay is critical. And the dolphins are usually the show. Pretty much same!

  • The dolphins usually appear from 6:30 in the morning, but sometimes take a little longer. You see them from a distance with binoculars loaned by the ICMBio. The better to see dolphins up close is the boat ride.

  • Dolphin boot on it. Have to dolphin out of the water! I killed all my desires to see dolphins for two lifetimes! Hehehehe. Just can't get the hand or pay R $5000. Serious.

Where to stay in Fernando de Noronha

The bad news is that, if you're on a budget, your trip to Fernando de Noronha might be starting to look a whole lot more expensive than you'd planned. Accommodations on the remote archipelago are understandably expensive, as all food and supplies have to be specially shipped in. All lodgings are on the largest island, Fernando de Noronha, which is the only one permanently inhabited in the archipelago. The majority of options consist of guesthouses and boutique hotels concentrated in the center of Vila dos Remédios, the island's town. However, look a bit farther outside of town and you can find some excellent eco-resorts and beachside accommodations.
