Baía do Sancho
Considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil, Praia do Sancho is undoubtedly a must see in Fernando de Noronha. It is located in the middle of a huge wall of stones and to get there, it is through the sea or by a staircase created in the middle of a crack in the stone. Access is not really the simplest, but the beach is delicious and makes up for the descent!
Baía dos Porcos
Little giant, that's the beautiful Baía dos Porcos. A beach formed in the middle of the stone wall, surrounded by green and natural pools accessible at low tide. The place has greenish waters that are usually visited by turtles and a beautiful visibility for the Morro dois Irmãos.
Baía do Sueste
Excellent for snorkeling, the Sueste is one of the most sought after beaches in Noronha. It has good structure, whose access is monitored and generally has few waves. The best thing about the Sueste is that it is possible to observe turtles, sharks and other fish of different species that commonly frequent the place to feed themselves.
Vila dos Remédios
This is the center of the island, where there are restaurants, cafes, shops and a charming church. It is a place that should eventually be known in the walks and should go if you want to enjoy the nightlife. It is in the Villa de los Remedios where is the Forte XX, which has a beautiful sunset.
Mirante do Boldró
Installed where the remains of Fort San Pedro del Boldró remain, the Mirador is another point on the island that many people like to go at sunset time. The view from above is wonderful and is even better when the sky is colored at nightfall.
