Praia do Sueste, Fernando de Noronha

Enjoy the calm sea and gentle waves at Praia do Sueste, the southeast bay on Fernando do Noronha Island. Rich marine life provides plenty of snorkeling opportunities and three nearby islands await exploration. As one of the main feeding grounds for sea turtles, the area enjoys protection; expect a good deal of seaweed, and designated diving sites. The bay's mangrove forest represents a true rarity, seen nowhere else on an island. Explore the nearby fort, guarding the entrance to the bay where a Dutch squadron landed in 1629. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Fernando de Noronha holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Praia do Sueste and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    great beach for snorkeling, has support for rent and diving equipment, these dives may be accompanied with a guide or not, made with and without, but recomente with a guide, we saw many schools of colorful fish, stingrays, giant sea turtles, sharks swimming alongside us, charming, I'm not even adept diving, liked it so much that I wanted to go back every day.

    I think that was the best beach for bathing. I was in April when the Dog and were just stones because the sea was with swell (ripples formed by storms at sea that comes towards the coast and form big waves that are great for surfers but leaving the raging sea. This phenomenon has made several tours and activities cannot be carried out) Super quiet. The beach is divided into 3 parts separated by buoys. In one of them, access is allowed only to authorized researchers through the Park. The central part is released for bath and, on the right, reserved for snorkeling being mandatory the use of float vest. It was the best beach for this activity. The marine life is immense and very varied. I was able to dive with sharks, turtles, lobster and a plethora of different fish. Have a snack bar, bathrooms, diving equipment rental and gift shop. To be within the National Marine Park, does not sell alcoholic beverages and, to eat, only savouries like pizza and appetizers.

    Good place for snorkeling, but the waves disturb a little. Pretty easy to see shark pups on edge of the sea. There are better places to dive as the port and Sancho.

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.
