Praia do Cacimba do Padre, Fernando de Noronha

Behold the magnificent Dois Irmãos, two striking “brother” islands of rock protruding from the ocean. Should they look familiar to you it is because they grace the front of many a Fernando de Noronha postcard, but these images pale in comparison to seeing them for real. Enjoy a delicious portion of fish in banana leaves--cooked and sold on the beach--while you marvel at the sight. Praia do Cacimba do Padre is also a surfer’s paradise, with waves considered some of the best in the country, and home to an annual surfing competition. The beach is a known spawning ground of sea turtles, too, so you must follow strict guidelines to not to disturb any nests. You might even get the opportunity to watch eggs hatch.

  • Yummy places! Another paradise of Noronha. Easy access, without climbing on rocks. Beach too hot to enjoy.

  • Next to this are located the Morro dois irmãos. That place ... worth too go on Bay of pigs (already was considered the second most beautiful beach in the world), since the path is toward the Hill.

  • Known as Brazilian Hawaii during the big waves, it's worth a visit, but just to admire, or for those who like surfing. Very choppy sea, towering waves that came in the sand.

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.
