Beach
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.
