Great beach inside a reserve but you´re supposed to go down 187 steps of an iron ladder between rocks. Not for everybody! Fat people would fit in there, children can get afraid. And then you have to climb the 187 steps back to top! :-(

Emma conducts a very useful course on the basics of underwater photography and works through a variety of cameras to understand how to apply what has been discussed.

Must go even with snap children. I took my 8 months and my 4 years old. Just be aware you might need to carry some extra weight.

Beautiful beach. Lovely golden sand Not many people. Be aware that the waves are strong so it's not a good swimming spot. To access the beach you must climb down two ladders which might not be suitable for some visitors.

The most beautiful beach I've ever been to. A bay with crystalline and warm waters, with coral plaques in the background.

Couple of points to begin. We really liked going. We thought it was picturesque. But, it’s a nice beach with a steep cliff and a challenging access as you’ve read. Be nimble. Don’t pack too much. We waited about 1 hour to get the chance...More

Pretty self explanatory! If you go in the morning it's super quiet and very peaceful. Can get really hot and there's not much natural shade.

Emma, the island is around 18 euros per day, you pay on arrival at the airport, or book online and skip a LONG wait. You need to know your arrival and departure to calculate the fees. The website of Noronha.pe.gov.br has... More
