#5 of 26 in Parks in Fernando de Noronha
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
The calm waters of Praia do Cachorro are translucent emerald green and the beach is soft sand or pebbles depending on the season. Breathtakingly beautiful, it sits below the ruins of Vila dos Remédios. The name comes from a bronze fountain in the shape of a dog’s head that no longer exists, but the fresh water spring still flows. A naturally formed plunge pool called “The Hole in the Galacian” can be found in the rocks surrounding the cove. A snorkel lets you admire the colorful sponges covering its walls. Overlooking the beach, you will find the lively Bar do Cachorro, serving delicious food and cold beer.

  • Short one beach with access through a stone staircase linking to Vila dos Remédios. Place of incredible beauty, but the beach has a very strong current that pulls to the bottom of the sea. You must be very careful.

  • Very small beach, Chandler and that has the beautiful hole of Galician, a formation of corals that with the low mare is beautiful, worth a photo, some jump, but it is small deserves attention, one of the most curtinhas beaches of Noronha and the access is by a staircase neither in the center of the Citizens And.
