Discover Fernando de Noronha Brazil

Also known by the name of Fernando de Loronha, this small archipelago located 214 miles off the north-eastern coast was declared a natural marine park in 1988. To protect the environment, access to the island is restricted to 100 tourists a day, and swimming is forbidden at low tide. A small mountain 321 meters high overhangs the only inhabited island, which has various preserved beaches and extraordinary wildlife, particularly in the surrounding waters. During the rainy season, from February to July, the island becomes verdant, and the seawater crystalline. It is said that free diving there is exceptional. You can see dolphins from a viewpoint on the Baia dos Golfinhos. This little paradise is in the state of Pernambuco and its capital is called Recife.
