Buraco da Raquel, Fernando de Noronha

(3.4/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
A visit to Buraco da Raquel is more of an interesting historical experience than your typical day spent at the beach. The name literally translates to “hole of Raquel” referring to a large rock with a hole in it, carrying a certain legend with it, which the guides will tell you about. Since it is an environmental conservation area, you actually are not able to go swimming nor get to close to the rock Go there for the story, the views, and the experience and then take a trip to the nearby Shark Museum. Put Buraco da Raquel and other Fernando de Noronha attractions into our Fernando de Noronha vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful site and interesting story. It is not allowed to take a bath on site. Stands in front of the Museum of the shark. So, you can meet a lot of different things in the same place.

  • It is a beautiful landscape, but can't get close to even get into the water, for being part of the Marine Park.

  • Is near the shark Museum, beautiful view, there's not much to see, but it's part of the tour and it is interesting to know the story.
