A little more about Fernando Do Noronha

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 shipwrecks 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.
