Fernando de Noronha

Fernando de Noronha

An absolute beautiful paradise, just off the north-east coast of Brazil is Fernando de Noronha. Finding a white sand beach is an easy task on the small volcanic island, but visiting three specific ones is essential: Praia do Sancho, which is a hidden secret, reached through a crack in a rock wall; Baía dos Porcos (Pig’s Bay), a veranda of white sand and aqua beauty and great for swimming; and Atalaia, a natural saltwater pool with abundant sea life like sea turtles and dolphins. All have crystal waters, and because tourist traffic to the islands are strictly monitored by the government, sea turtles, octopuses, a variety of rainbow colored fish, and even sharks are easy to spot. But don’t worry about the sharks too much, the food chain is well preserved here and the sharks are far less dangerous than they are elsewhere.

The diving here is well know. But if your sole purpose of going is for diving, I think you’re better suited going to Honduras, Cayman Islands or Cozumel. Those places better suited for divers and more affordable. But if your looking for a beautiful white sand paradise to dig your toes in, a romantic trip with your other half, honeymooning, or looking for a remote piece of paradise, this definitely the place for you.
