A nice beach to relax on. Umbrellas and seating is already set up, and costs 50R$ for the day. It might be difficult to find a free spot after lunch, but we came at different times and didn't have trouble finding available shade.

The waves a pretty big, so unless you're going in to surf, you'll be slapped in the face quite hard - you can splash or just have a dip close to the shore, but I wouldn't risk going in.

I'm pretty sure this is the only place that you can access Baia dos Porcos from (by climbing rocks to the left).

Loved this beach. We rented the umbrella with couple chairs for R$70. (There are 3-4 different vendors and price varies) The snorkelling between Cacimba and Dois Irmaos is pretty good. We saw a lot of fishes closer to Dois Irmaos. Also saw a lot of sardines and the birds diving into the water to feed on the sardines. From Cacimba, you can also swim to Baia dos Porcos which is amazing.

OK, that is the beach with send and one huge and interesting rock. But, you must spend some time there. You must take drink in the beach bar behind the beach. You must come with buggy on the beach. You must look at surfers some time. You must taste salt from the ocean and try to do surf. Wait sunset, you will forget your problems. Just seat on the send and don't think. If you need strong infrastructure like shower, sunbeds, waiters with ice cubes this beach isn't for you. If you can accept Brazilian way of life and style you will enjoy very much. Depend of you.

Sadly this was the last beach I went to, but I recommend you go there first, because it is a nice beach to lay down on and also you can hike to Baía dos Porcos and take amazing pictures of the main tourist attractions of the islands, like Morro Dois Irmãos.

A very beautiful beach, perfect to enjoy a sunny day and to watch the surfers! The beach is very clean and it is easy to access it.

I got to say this place is a must for any family looking to spend quality time outdoors. I booked via samasearch.com and wasn't too sure first but when you get here it's really is beautiful.

I dont have much option to write what I need to. So here is this:
Fernando De Nornha is a great place and a great beach.
BUT THERE ARE SO MANY LIKE THIS PLACE AND IT IS SIMPLY NOT WORTH ALMOST £ 3000 that it can cost for a trip. All the activities that are available here are available in different places and frankly the ONLY reason I went to this place was "DIVING".
I am so so so disappointed. All I saw was some sharks/turtles and fishes. Some may say, so why I am complaining, because the way the whole place is advertised was giving an impression of a place teaming up with aquatic life which is not the case and mostly one end up seeing underwater rocks (not corals as advertised). Having said that, I have dived in Great Barrier reef and red sea.

The place is not tourist friendly too. The conservation ticket is taken at the airport but the National Park ticket (ie entry to the beaches) is not. For this one need to go to a different place. The buggy are all manual so if one is an automatic driving licence holder, that option does not exist.
People are very nice and full of smile and helpful.
No one speaks English ( thats everywhere in Brazil) but sign language worked perfectly in this tiny island.
We did enjoy the stay here though knowing what I know now, I would not have gone there in the first place and wont recommend to anyone.

The place is beautiful. There are 2 bars close to the beach for food and drinks. The sea is rough but warm. If you are brave and fit enough wait for low tide and visit Baia dos Porcos.
