Fernando de Noronha Marine National Park

Consisting of one main island and a few small islets far out in the Atlantic Ocean, exclusive Fernando de Noronha is regarded by Brazilians as the perfect island destination. Its limited accommodation, high prices and status as a marine national park have conspired to keep it uncrowded and largely unspoilt. The best diving in all Brazil is found here, as well as many beautiful beaches and plenty of wildlife including turtles and dolphins (our director dived with dolphins on his last trip there – the only time he has done that). Volkswagen buggies can be hired for independent exploration and to visit some fabulous beaches and boat trips can be taken for dolphin-watching and reaching various isolated beaches not accessible by road.
