3.4
#13 of 19 in Beaches in Fernando de Noronha
Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Blue sea, white foam, breathtaking view. Be sure to know. Right near the port. Place to sit and enjoy the nature, the sea.

  • The worth of this tour is to know the story involving the real Raquel hole ... lol. But it's a rock with a small hole underneath. Not a big deal. In the parking lot you will have an interesting restaurant and a gift shop, beyond those sculptures in the garden which is mandatory crossing point for those who will Noronha. But the hole really is nothing.

  • There is an incredible magic in this place. Viewed from the sea or from land, this hole impresses so much, I just want to dedicate hours of contemplation. It is a testament to more of the creativity of nature.

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.
