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.

Buraco da Raquel Reviews
Today one has to look at this big rock by the shore from a 'Mirante', a view point. Located in the island's north, not far from the Porto do Santo Antonio one is not allowed to go to the rock itself..... more »
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. more »
The view is quite beautiful. According to the tour guide, Raquel was the daughter of an important person on the island and fled to this hole almost always. This place is right next to the Shark Museum.
