Create an itinerary including Baia dos Golfinhos
Baia dos Golfinhos is sublimely beautiful with its striking landscape, lush vegetation, and bright blue water, but that is not its main appeal. For centuries, schools of spinner dolphins have been coming to the stunning bay and, from atop the 50 m (164 ft) cliff, you are almost guaranteed a sighting of some resting in the cove after a night of hunting. Research biologists from the “Projeto Golfinho Rotador” organization monitor the animals daily and readily answer questions. They will even lend you binoculars for a better look.

  • There are some viewpoints where you can see the bay from above on a trail accessible from the Sancho beach entrance. The trail continues through the hills to the Sancho Beach access ladder.

  • A very nice place to observe dolphins, turtles and the intense and deep blue sea. There are better times than others to go. We went at 10:30 or 11 in the morning and we were able to observe them after a few minutes.
