Baia dos Golfinhos, Fernando de Noronha

4.6
#9 of 19 in Beaches in Fernando de Noronha
Beach Nature / Park
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Fernando de Noronha attractions like Baia dos Golfinhos can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The gazebo is wonderful, has an incredible view, here I haven't seen dolphins, but worth a visit, they say dolphins appear here first thing in the morning, I saw them, but it was the boat trip, we saw many. Wonderful.

  • More power and pleasurable view these dolphins up close, every day they come out to the open sea and boat trips can have this incredible experience to see them coming to the boat

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.
