Atalaia Beach, Fernando de Noronha

#6 of 26 in Parks in Fernando de Noronha
Beach · Nature / Park
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. Tem tempo e quantidade de pessoas para ficar e entrar na piscina por vez, não pode usar protetor solar para não contaminar a água. Simplesmente Lindo! Vale mto a pena visitar.
