Five hundred and forty five kilometres from the shore of the Brazilian state of Pernambuco is a tropical island called Fernando de Noronha. This island is the largest in the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, which consists of 21 islands. It is the only island that is occupied and holds one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world.

In order to fully enjoy the numerous natural attractions and experience a little bit of the island’s colonization history, a trip to the Noronha entails at least five days. There are a lot of activities and tour alternatives, which please all kinds of people and offer to them the chance to witness all the natural attractions of the island.

The Beaches of Noronha are split into two sectors: the Inside Sea named Mar de Dentro, and the Outside Sea named Mar de Fora. The Inside Sea is the one en route for the shore of Brazil. It has 10 beaches and 2 bays, one of which is so special that access is limited, called the Dolphin Bay. The Inside Sea becomes a popular area for surfing from November to April when the windy season comes. But for the majority of the year, the sea is tranquil and calm and guarded from the Eastern winds.

The Outside Sea is the one en route for Africa. This sector has 4 beaches, 1 creek, and 2 areas for meditation, and swimming pools on rocks. The Outside Sea is rough, but in some areas a tad bit tranquilized by the reefs, which grasp the waves in between the rocks. This division is filled with water spouts, which are very big areas that are full of colourful fish, similar to an enormous aquarium.
