Praia do Cachorro, Fernando de Noronha

(4.3/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
The calm waters of Praia do Cachorro are translucent emerald green and the beach is soft sand or pebbles depending on the season. Breathtakingly beautiful, it sits below the ruins of Vila dos Remédios. The name comes from a bronze fountain in the shape of a dog’s head that no longer exists, but the fresh water spring still flows. A naturally formed plunge pool called “The Hole in the Galacian” can be found in the rocks surrounding the cove. A snorkel lets you admire the colorful sponges covering its walls. Overlooking the beach, you will find the lively Bar do Cachorro, serving delicious food and cold beer.

  • Is on the right corner of the beach you will find the famous hole in the Galician (natural pool with 3mts deep). Is only possible to reach at low tide and the sea without waves. See the Board of tides. The Dog Beach is as beautiful as all the beaches in Noronha. There's a part of it that is. Easy access. Has bar and restaurant. The night has a yummy mylifeofcrime

  • The beach is in vila dos Remedios and have easy access. The sunset from there is awesome. Many stones and the tide comes in very late in the afternoon. Best sunset I've ever seen. Too beautiful!

  • Is a very attractive beach by a convination of colors between the blue of the sea, golden sand and the lush green surrounding it, never missing a small stripe which is close to the shore
