Part of a national marine park, Atalaia Beach invites travelers to explore its aquarium-like shallow natural pool, the largest one on the island. Nestled in a cove protected by a reef, the beach features a narrow strip of land covered with soft golden sand and round black stones, evidence of the island's volcanic history. Though snorkeling in the 40 cm (16 in) deep pool at low tide is ideal for beginners, experienced snorkelers may find it not stimulating enough.

Trilha tranquila de 1,5km, água cristalina e quentinha, local raso, mas com muitos peixes de diversas espécies, inclusive tinha um filhote de tubarão nadando conosco.

Lugar diferenciado muito lindo
