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.

  • Through the entrance of the praia do Sancho, there is a quiet trail to the Baía dos Golfinhos. To view the dolphins entering the Bay, get there early. Begin to arrive before 6:00. There is a rest area, you can see them rotating in the air. The monitors provide binoculars for this. Take a camera with a good zoom, there is very high and the dolphins are far. I could see a Cheetah swimming with them.

  • You only get access to the lookout for this Bay, not the Bay itself, but it is a pretty nice view and in 10 minutes I was there, I saw from the top through the crystal clear water many dolphins, a shark and a turtle. There are binoculars available for use. the trail to get to the lookout is actually a wooden walkway, well wooded and pretty.

  • We're just going to the site to make sure of the beauty that is in addition to the tour with the dolphins next to the catamaran, is undoubtedly spectacular. It's worth it.

  • 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.

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.
