Atalaia Beach, Fernando de Noronha

4.6
#6 of 27 in Parks in Fernando de Noronha
Part of a national marine park, Atalaia Beach invites travelers to explore its aquarium-like shallow natural pool, the largest one on the island. Nestled in a cove protected by a reef, the beach features a narrow strip of land covered with soft golden sand and round black stones, evidence of the island's volcanic history. Though snorkeling in the 40 cm (16 in) deep pool at low tide is ideal for beginners, experienced snorkelers may find it not stimulating enough.

  • Noronha is beautiful, to get to the natural pool (there is only pool, no beach) you have to walk 30 minutes pre-order access (with day and time to only access 30 minutes to the pool). In my opinion it is not worth missing a day at the beach for this experience.

  • It is worth doing the long trail (about 4 hours) but you need scheduling first and hire the guide. Tip: make the appointment on the day of arrival on the island

  • Quiet trail of 1, 5km, crystalline and warm water, shallow place, but with many fish of various species, even had a shark cub swimming with us. It has time and amount of people to stay and enter the pool at a time, can not use sunscreen to not contaminate the water. Just beautiful! It is worthwhile to visit.
