People from all over the world are now discovering the Archipelago of Fernando de Noronha, a veritable oasis seemingly lost in the surrounding blue sea.
There are various choices of where to stay on the island. All are tipically modest. In all there are 70 inns, classified according to their facilities and touristic infrastructure, and a small hotel. Reservations should be made early, especially for the months of January, February, July and December, as well as for longer holidays. There are also a few luxury lodges available.
There are many beaches to choose from on the island. Some are better adapted to diving, others to swimming, contemplation, surfing, etc. In general, the beaches found on the protected side of the main island are ideal for diving and swimming during the months of April through November, due to the extremely calm sea. During the rest of the year, the changing conditions of the sea favor surfing, especially during January and February.
Fernando de Noronha is one of the best Brazilian diving spots. It has exhuberant sea life and it is famous by its dolphin concentration.
There are one daily flight from Recife to Noronha and vice-versa.
