  • It is the most easterly point of South America, it's like being at the end of the world, a very different feeling. The place has a very strong energy.

  • Worth a visit, the road to get down there is clay, but visual compensates for the distance. The car parks near the gazebo

  • Visual unmissable. One of the best places to meet in Noronha. A few minutes there are already more than enough to recharge.

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.
