Sunset on Baia dos Porcos

I headed straight for Baia dos Porcos after landing in Fernando de Noronha. So, it was my first impression of the island. The beach is famous for Dos Hermanos, the two rocks jutting out of the ocean. It's a very nice beach, great for watching the sunset and surfers, who are just wild about the waves here. This is probably the most scenic beach on the island and certainly the most photographed.

Hitchhiking ok on Fernando de Noronha

The first time I hitchhiked was as a solo female traveler, in Brazil no less. Enough people on the island assured me that hitchhiking would be ok, so I gave it a try. Worked out great, met some natives, saved a little money and a lot of time. No waiting for the bus!
