Went as part of a tour. They failed to mention on the booking that this beach and sancho were part of a national park system and you need to pay for a permit. 96 real for Brazilians and 198 real for foreigners. There is some limited floating snorkeling with great reefs and coral. If lucky you will see some small... More

This is a beautiful beach within the park, very peaceful, although it gets crowded (for Noronha) during week ends. It is the end of the bus route. You can also hitch hike easily to it. There is also the trail to Leao Beach up the road. The park entrance also includes a place to get drinks and snacks. You can... More

A good suggestion is to pay one of the divers who stay on the beach. They can assist you with more reliability and they know exactly where are the most diverse types of marine species. You can see fish, octopuses, lobsters, turtles of various sizes and large sharks.
