Fernando de Noronha is a small island, about 17 km squares, comprising 21 Islands, but offers much to see and live! But get organized so you don't miss a minute of want of everything that this paradise really delivers!

Baía do Sancho, Baía dos Porcos and Cacimba do Padre are definitely the most beautiful beaches of Noronha 3! The island is divided into two strands: the mar de dentro (Brazil) and the outside (Africa). The most beautiful are geared to the sea inside, for sure! Is this side of the island that the sun goes down, another SideShow, in a very sought after area in praia da Conceição and Boldró. Don't forget never the snorkel and diving mask! The marine life of Fernando de Noronha is something surreal and always worth having these artifices in hands! A good tip is to get always what you eat and drink for any tour because there's a lot of infrastructure for water and food stalls.



Noronha is considered one of the best places in the world to dive! Stingrays, schools varied, dolphins, moray eels, barracudas, turtles, and other marine wonders! With a visibility of up to 50 m any kind of diving you will become a unique experience, with even the option of night dives!

The sunset in Noronha is certainly a SideShow. The most sought after for the "show" are on Cacimba do Padre, Boldro, Conceição. And can be seen from observatories or the Forte de São Paulo.

Who's afraid of conventional diving the snorkealing is perfect! Atalaia beach is the perfect setting for that! A real Heaven under d ´ water! Bank reef near sand brings us small octopuses, sharks and sea turtles. The entry on this beach is controlled by Ibama and must schedule before diving. Pay attention to that. The value of the ticket for Brazilians is R$75,00 and R $ 150 for foreigners. With this ticket in hand, you will have access not only to this beach, but as also the Baía dos Golfinhos, Sancho Bay, two brothers and Belvedere you can find them also in Flamboyant Square. Remembering that are groups of a maximum of 16 people at a time for each dive, with a 1 mile walk and Lo and behold: a half-hour dive only to group. But surely what will be seen there will compensate the effort!



Vila dos Remedios is where is located the historic centre of Noronha. 18TH century constructions meet the main urban core. For those who enjoy architecture, there's a dish made!

Trails are also key point of the island. There are more than 15 tracks in total, with distances ranging from 170 m to 5 km to the not so adventurous there are buggies that make a tour of the island, the well-known Ilhatur. A great option for those who don't wish to rent a car and there is not too much in the mood of the Trek. There are even stops to dives.

The island also features debates and daily lectures on the so-called visitor center – headquarters of Projeto Tamar and also of Ibama, always starting at 8 pm. The nightlife of Noronha starts early. One of the events most wanted is the famous forró do Bar do Cachorro, which happens every day, but the highlight is on Friday! On nights of the full moon may occur delicious luais beachfront!
