Ilha do Fogo, Petrolina

3.0
#4 of 6 in Parks in Petrolina
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.

    Great place for bathing. I went during the week and the movement was very quiet, very few people raged on the island which gave peace to the place.

    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.

Where to stay in Petrolina

Much of Petrolina’s activity centers around the snaking Sao Francisco River, and the majority of the city’s hotels can be found here. These vary in quality but offer easy access to restaurants, bars, and stores as well as the city of Juazeiro, which sits just across the bridge. Those who want to enjoy the youthful buzz and affordable eateries that the University provides should look for accommodations near or on Dom Malan Square. Smaller guesthouses and bed and breakfasts tend to be less expensive but are generally tucked away in residential areas.
