Praia do Cacimba do Padre, Fernando de Noronha

Behold the magnificent Dois Irmãos, two striking “brother” islands of rock protruding from the ocean. Should they look familiar to you it is because they grace the front of many a Fernando de Noronha postcard, but these images pale in comparison to seeing them for real. Enjoy a delicious portion of fish in banana leaves--cooked and sold on the beach--while you marvel at the sight. Praia do Cacimba do Padre is also a surfer’s paradise, with waves considered some of the best in the country, and home to an annual surfing competition. The beach is a known spawning ground of sea turtles, too, so you must follow strict guidelines to not to disturb any nests. You might even get the opportunity to watch eggs hatch.

  • Every beach you go on the island is a surprise. You walk in, and you can't believe the scenery. All beautiful. Many suffer that they do better still. No doubt there is Q visit and cross to the beach next door, Baia dos Porcos, which is only accessed with low tide

  • Place to spend all day. Spectacular beach. I recommend booking a full day to enjoy it and the two that stay in the surroundings. Important to go at low tide so that access to the Bay of Pigs is free. On the other side the beach of Bode also allows a good walk. If possible, book lunch in advance. The fish on the banana leaf is delicious. The sunset is unforgettable.
