Praia da Cacimba do Padre

The foremost beach for surfing on the island of Fernando de Noronha, Praia da Cacimba do Padre is said to have some of the best breaks on all of Brazil’s expansive coastline. Also known as Praia da Quixaba, it is one of the island’s biggest beaches.

Boasting white sands and views towards the hills known as Morros Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers islets), the surfing season lasts from December through to March, when waves can top five metres in height. During this period, the island hosts a number of surf festivals and competitions, which are well worth looking out for.
