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.

  • Give it to take pictures of the morro dos dois irmãos, boaça ... Beach hottie, intense blue and still rolls a little stand that cold beer, but cash only.

  • The beach is beautiful, but rough seas. Excellent for observation, walk or surf. Is not the best for swimming. Beautiful landscape and that deserves a visit. The beach is gorgeous, but not for bathing. Great for watching, trekking or surfing. Not the best for bathing. Beautiful landscape and worth the visit.

  • 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.
