Praia do Cachorro, Fernando de Noronha

(4.3/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • It is a nice place easy to go walking from the center of Fernando de Noronha, calm beach where you can rest and enjoy. 
  • Any kind of accommodation. The place even has chairs/beach umbrella rental. Were in four people and we can't stay there 10 minutes. I recommend all the other beaches.

  • The beach is beautiful, but go at low tide, there are many rocks and it's safer during low tide. It is during this tide also that you will have access to the Hole of the Galician.
