Ilha do Fogo, Petrolina

(2.9/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Ilha do Fogo is located in the middle of Sao Francisco River, which separates Petrolina from its twin city Juazeiro. The island presents panoramic views of both cities, and is a popular hangout of tourists and locals. At this location you can take leisurely strolls along the long stretch of sand, fish, practice sports, or take refreshing swims in the crystal clear river. The island is a favorite spot for picnickers, who spend all day sunbathing, barbecuing, and playing sand volleyball. You can do the same with your family, but be sure to bring plenty of cool drinks and snacks. Stay late to see and photograph the sun setting over the skyline of the twin cities. Put Ilha do Fogo at the forefront of your travel plans using our Petrolina vacation generator.

  • The location is quite precarious, is on the border of Petrolina-PE with Juazeiro-BA, usually fill up on weekends, there are other entertainment options in the area, don't waste time.

  • I didn't think it was very interesting, the only attraction is the river and the sunset, which can also be seen from the edge of Petrolina.

  • Fire Island is located between the cities of Petrolina (Pernambuco) and Juazeiro (BA). Location great for bath, motorboat, kayaks. Needs a restaurant
