A little more about Fernando do Noronha

An archipelago of 21 idyllic islands, Fernando do Noronha is located 250 kilometres off the north east coast of Brazil. The most exclusive beach destination in South America, with less than 500 visitors allowed per day and few flights from the mainland. The beaches are beautiful, some so well protected that visitors are not allowed to wear sun cream. Of the island’s 16 pristine beaches, Lion’s Beach, Atalaia Beach and Sanchos Bay are the best on the island, whilst Rocas Atoll is the perfect spot for rock pooling at low tide when the reefs are exposed and the tidal pools teem with sea life. The snorkelling and scuba diving is fantastic with visibility of up to 50 metres and the water 25 degrees all year round. There are some 30 dive sites around the island including spectacular coral reefs, walls and ship wrecks where sharks, dolphins, turtles, moray eels and over 200 species of fish can all be spotted. The fauna on the islands is equally impressive with pelicans, Red Footed Boobies and Albatross among just some of the birds on the island.

When to go to Fernando de Noronha

The island can be visited all year with its tropical climate, however it is worth noting that the rainy season runs from April to August.
