  • It is only possible to arrive in the Archipelago by plane or boat. The option most used by tourists is to go by plane, of course - which, in addition to being fast, is comfortable. The number of flights to Noronha does not grow just to maintain preservation. The island is only 17km² and some of its greatest charms are to have few people and be a quiet place. More people mean more environmental impact, and no one wants to lose the beauties of Noronha for lack of care
