Fernando de Noronha

Fernando de Noronha is a 21-island archipelago, located 219 miles off Brazil’s Atlantic coast—arguably the most beautiful island chain in all of South America.

“Here is paradise.”

Amerigo Vespucci

Fernando de Noronha serves as an excellent dive location.

This picturesque archipelago is protected as both a national marine park and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Fernando de Noronha Islands are tiny; the largest encompassing an area of just eleven-square miles.

Hiking, Biking, and Dune Buggies

Dune buggies and bicycles are the preferred methods for reaching the numerous beaches and coves found here.

Visitors can also hike to abandoned forts—relics of Portuguese, French and Dutch occupation—that ring the main island.

The archipelago’s climate is tropical, with temperatures ranging from 70° to 85° year-round.

Green Sea Turtle Watching

From December to May, Green sea turtles can be observed on the islands, hatching and quickly scrambling for the surf.

Accommodations on Fernando de Noronha range from simple bed-and-breakfasts to small, but luxurious pousadas.

Reservations should be made well in advance, especially during the December through March peak season.

War Fort

No more than 420 visitors are allowed on the Fernando de Noronha archipelago at any given time.
