Snorkeling beach

Snorkelling is done at low tide as sharks enter this bay during high tide. We saw baby sharks, turtles and plenty of fish.

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.

We went on a guided swim with turtles. One of the unforgettable moments I'll bring with me of this island. Having a professional local diver made us more worry free with the ocean and comfortable to be swimming for so long. Definitely recommend this ride!

This beach in the park, be sure you have your ticket, is the place you can rent snorkeling equipment and swim out along the rocky coast and find yourself in aquarium conditions full of fish. There are many green turtles there feeding on bottom vegetation. We saw one group of six as well as many swimming alone or in pairs.... More

I wasn't luck over there, but my friends saw many fishes, turtles and even sharks using snorkel over there. I recommend taking a guide, I didn't and regret after.

This beach is part of the National Park. That means you need to buy the ticket to have access to (see may comment about Baia do Sancho). To swim on the right side of beach ( where you can observe turtles, fishes and sharks) you must use life jackets ( you can rent them at the visitor's center just by... More
