Praia do Cachorro, Fernando de Noronha

#5 of 26 in Parks in Fernando de Noronha
Beach · Nature / Park
The calm waters of Praia do Cachorro are translucent emerald green and the beach is soft sand or pebbles depending on the season. Breathtakingly beautiful, it sits below the ruins of Vila dos Remédios. The name comes from a bronze fountain in the shape of a dog’s head that no longer exists, but the fresh water spring still flows. A naturally formed plunge pool called “The Hole in the Galacian” can be found in the rocks surrounding the cove. A snorkel lets you admire the colorful sponges covering its walls. Overlooking the beach, you will find the lively Bar do Cachorro, serving delicious food and cold beer.

  • Praia curtinha com acesso através de uma escadaria de pedra que liga à Vila dos Remédios. Lugar de beleza incrível, porém a praia tem uma correnteza muito forte que puxa para o fundo do mar. Deve-se ter muito cuidado.
  • Praia bem pequena, charmosinha e que tem o belo buraco do galego, uma formação de corais que com a mare baixa é lindo, vale uma foto, alguns pulam, mas ele é pequeno merece atenção, um das praias mais curtinhas de Noronha e o acesso é por uma escadaria nem no centro da cidade.
