The Most Beautiful Places Of Fernando de Noronha

Fernando de Noronha is a popular destination among travel enthusiasts. Here are some all-time popular activities to do while you are there.

Around 350 kilometers (217 miles) off Brazil’s northeast coast is the marine conservation area of Fernando de Noronha, comprised of 21 islands. One of Brazil’s real paradise islands, the volcanic archipelago features unspoiled beaches flanked by high rocky peaks and is accessible only by dune buggies. In addition to the rays, turtles, whale sharks, and dolphins that frequent its warm, clear seas, the island is home to several rare reptiles and birds. The top attractions of Fernando de Noronha are listed below.

Atalaia Trail

The Atalaia trail travels along the island’s coastline, providing stunning vistas of the turquoise sea and rugged peaks, and offering opportunities to stop at small pools to swim and snorkel with the native marine life. There are two different walks to choose from: a shorter one that requires no guide and a longer one that takes four hours. The latter is highly recommended for greater vistas and animal viewing, but the tour operator must always be scheduled upon arrival in Fernando de Noronha due to the island’s low tourist capacity.

Bica Beach

Bica Beach, in the island’s north, isn’t the finest place to go swimming, but the area’s spectacular scenery and pristine natural beauty make it well worth the trip. The fortifications of Fortaleza dos Remédios may be seen above the high cliffs that border the shore, which was produced by the island’s volcanic history and are black in color. One of the biggest draws is the lookout point, which provides breathtaking views of the beach below and the waters just offshore, where some shipwreck remnants may still be visible to the observant eye.

Water Sports

Taking a boat tour around Fernando de Noronha is a great opportunity to view the entire island and stop at several of its beautiful beaches. Beautiful scenery may be seen, including long expanses of silvery white beaches and high cliffs covered with lush, natural flora. Stops in tranquil locations to go snorkeling in the surrounding water are a standard part of boat trips, along with visits to popular destinations like Lion Cave, Beach dos Sanchos, the ’s Brother Islands, & Ponto de Sapato.

Scuba Diving

The abundant marine life around Fernando de Noronha makes scuba diving a popular activity among visitors. The water is so clear that divers can see as far as 30 meters (98 feet) below the surface, and the temperature rarely drops below 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit), making it one of the nicest spots in Brazil to go scuba diving. There are more than 20 dive sites to explore, and divers can encounter many different species of marine life, including some that are found nowhere else on Earth.


Depending on the season, the waves of Fernando de Noronha are perfect for surfing, making it a popular hobby for the island’s fortunate inhabitants. From December through April, Praia da Cacimba do Padre coastline is one of the top surf sites on the island due to its clear seas and long, hollow tube waves.
