Fernando de Noronha
Emerald of the Atlantic
With 21 lush islands scattered among pristine waters in the Atlantic Ocean, a Fernando de Noronha holiday is well worth the effort it takes to get there. More than 350 km (220 mi) from the easternmost tip of the Brazilian mainland, this World Heritage Site was discovered by Portuguese explorers in the early 16th century, and is nowadays accessible by airplane or cruise liner. Several species of rare native birds populate the islands, while the nearby waters brim with humpback whales, sea turtles, and various species of dolphin. Much of the territory surrounding the archipelago enjoys protection as a marine national park, which has helped keep the area picturesque and unspoiled by excessive development. Fernando de Noronha is in State of Pernambuco (PE). Use our Brazil holiday planner to plan your trip to Fernando de Noronha and other destinations in Brazil.
