watch the dolphins

There are two easier ways to observe dolphins that found in the calm and clear waters a perfect home for the preservation of the species. One of them is doing the traditional tours with nautical vessels that travel the entire coast of the so-called inner sea.

Another is waking up early to get to Mirante dos Golfinhos, which is inside the Fernando de Noronha National Park area, where you can borrow some binoculars and watch the dolphins leaving the bay in search of food.

Isolation and contact with nature

The great distance traveled to reach Noronha is already one of the reasons that keep us disconnecting until we reach the island, there the internet signal is weak and in high season it hardly works often. This isolation gives us even more time and desire to explore the beauties that the archipelago offers, there's nothing better than waking up early every day when you're at your destination and walking along the beach at sunrise then spending the entire afternoon without worrying. with nothing relaxing in the midst of some paradisiacal landscape.

Natural pools

As it is a very rugged territory, several rock formations scattered throughout the archipelago form natural pools during the low tide period. Among them is Praia do Atalaia, a huge natural pool a few meters deep that is home to dozens of offspring of species that live in the region. The attraction can only be visited by appointment and has a maximum number of visitors per day.

unique geography

The exotic territory formed by 21 islands is made up of peninsulas, bays and large hills covered by incredible native vegetation that cut across Noronha. These characteristics form unique scenarios that seem to have come out of a Hollywood movie or a photo advertising great international paradise destinations.

Among all the tours that stand out on the island, one of the most popular and fun is the plano sub, a kind of mini board that is towed out to sea by typical boats taking tourists who manually command several maneuvers under water, observing the intense marine life in the region.


ecological trails

If you love to have a deep contact with nature, a walk along the various trails present on the island can be a pleasant and surprising tour for you. The Pontinha-Pedra Trail, for example, takes visitors from Praia da Caieira to Praia de Atalaia. It's a four-hour walk, passing through small peninsulas of cliffs, such as Pontinha and the Ponta da Pedra Alta viewpoint.
