Fernando de Noronha nightlife

Unlike bigger cities in Brazil such as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo, Fernando de Noronha has very limited offering for nightlife. So if you are thinking of a way to spend a night getaway, you’ll have to make the most of what is available on the island. Here are some suggestions on where and how to enjoy your night in Fernando de Noronha:


Near the island’s port are bars and kiosks that offer a venue to chill and relax over a bottle of beer. There are also places that provide space for dancing and mingling with the locals.

One of these places is the open bar named Bar do Cachorro which is located next to the Cachorro’s beach. Open from 10 in the evening until dawn, the bar usually plays Brazilian music such as samba, pagoda, and forró. With free entrance, tourists can consider the bar one of the main night spots on the island.

Another bar option in Fernando de Noronha is the Capital dos Mares or the Sea Captain in English which is located on top of a cliff. The bar’s location still holds a view of the ruins of one of the 10 forts built to secure the island during the middle of the 1700s.


Tourists looking for a place to dine on the island at night can expect a wide range of seafood from the menu. Surrounded by water, seafood is the island’s most popular dish; it varies from sashimi to sushi, baked, grilled, etc.. Among the famous cuisines in the island are the fish wrapped in banana leaf and the shark meat dumpling that was deep fried.

For those with an unlimited budget, Trattoria di Morena and the Restaurante do Zé Maria are among the top choices. The first, which was built in 1999, specializes in serving contemporary cuisine and is open daily from 5:00 PM to 11:30 PM; while the second offers tourists a twist of the island’s local dishes, it is open from 12 NN to 11:30 PM daily.

Restaurante Teju-Açu on the other hand, which is another high-end restaurant in Fernando de Noronha serves diners with dishes that feature the combination of International and Brazilian flavors presented in the most creative and modern way.

There may not be a lot of nightlife choices in Fernando de Noronha, but tourists can take this opportunity to do away with the noisy, rowdy, and crowded nightlife in the bigger cities. This can also be a chance for visitors to just relax at night since, after all, daytime activities on the island is limitless.
