Praia da Cacimba do Padre - Fernando de Noronha
Cacimba do Padre beach

Praia da Cacimba do Padre is one of the best known beaches  from the island mainly due to its stunning scenery e waves perfect for practicing surf.

It is located on the island of Fernando de Noronha  in the state of Pernambuco.   At certain times of the year there are surfing championships, bringing together the main names of this sport in the country and the world.


It has an extensive stretch of sand and a very beautiful sea, although it is very rough during the wave season. 

A beach that could be said to be among the best in Noronha.

The beach was named after Father Francisco Adelino de Brito Dantas who by chance discovered a source of drinking water on the island. This fountain was considered the best in all of Noronha, 14 meters deep, even though it is in a completely deserted region, close to Quixaba.

The name remains until today as “Cacimba do Padre”, because near the source, ruins indicate great constructions of the past. It is possible that it is actually the former home of the mysterious Adelino de Brito.

The water from the  cacimba was very pure and was given to the sick as healing water.

this fact occurred in 1888, in the then chaplain of the Presidio of Fernando de Noronha.

Wonderful history as much as the beach.
