  • Beautiful beach. High waves, heavy seas, but a beautiful place to take several pictures perfect. Not counting the birds giving your dives to catch the fish.

  • The island is incredible! Good dive, people generally is friendly, at the time I went (February) very good waves for surfing, the only problem is that everything is friendly.

  • If you come to Noronha be sure to get information about some of the history of that beautiful island. And Fernando de Noronha has a decent memory of appreciation! The Memorial Noronhense Espaço Cultural Américo Vespucio. There you will find, in the form of a Panel the anthem of Fernando de Noronha, named Miss Noronha, which was composed of the Cel. Gercy Teles de Menezes. There's also the flag that has two emblematic symbols of the island: Morro do Pico and the dolphin. There are a lot of interesting information. Since who was the discoverer, Americo Véspúcio, a Florentine-born Spanish navigator, which approached the island on 10 August 1503. Called the wonderful island "and is your the expression:" Heaven is here ". But there's plenty more memories and history. Set aside an afternoon or morning to check out and take a trip back in time!

Where to stay in Fernando de Noronha

The bad news is that, if you're on a budget, your trip to Fernando de Noronha might be starting to look a whole lot more expensive than you'd planned. Accommodations on the remote archipelago are understandably expensive, as all food and supplies have to be specially shipped in. All lodgings are on the largest island, Fernando de Noronha, which is the only one permanently inhabited in the archipelago. The majority of options consist of guesthouses and boutique hotels concentrated in the center of Vila dos Remédios, the island's town. However, look a bit farther outside of town and you can find some excellent eco-resorts and beachside accommodations.
