Forte Sao Pedro do Boldro, Fernando de Noronha

Climb the ruins of an 18th-century fortress at Forte Sao Pedro do Boldro, a hilltop observation deck. Exploration of this archeological site will give you plenty of panoramic views of the bay and twin limestone islands just off the coast. A clifftop bar serves drinks and snacks in the later part of the day; try munguza, a local white corn delicacy with milk, sugar, cloves, and cinnamon. Many people gather to watch the sunset here--if coming for this, arrive early for a good spot.

    Most beautiful sunset of the island. One of the days that we had no clouds and it was possible to monitor the sun goes down "into the sea"

    We went to the Fort in a late afternoon, watching the sunset. Simply unforgettable, watch the sun go down and next to the formations of "two brothers". Next to a small bar, with live music of great quality!

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.
