A visit to Buraco da Raquel is more of an interesting historical experience than your typical day spent at the beach. The name literally translates to “hole of Raquel” referring to a large rock with a hole in it, carrying a certain legend with it, which the guides will tell you about. Since it is an environmental conservation area, you actually are not able to go swimming nor get to close to the rock Go there for the story, the views, and the experience and then take a trip to the nearby Shark Museum. Add Buraco da Raquel to your Fernando de Noronha travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Fernando de Noronha day trip website.

  • All the tourist guides try to take you there...but there is nothing special to see there. If you want to see sharks there are better places.
