At the North Eastern tip of Brazil is Jericoacoara, home to huge sand dunes and a deliciously laid back vibe. Further south, the small fishing village of Pipa perches on cliffs overlooking some of Brazil’s finest beaches. Finally, 220 miles from the mainland east of Pipa lies the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha – a UNESCO Natural Heritage site - consisting of 21 small volcanic islands, isolated in the equatorial South Atlantic. All different, all wonderful.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Finished off with coconut trees and miles of pristine white beaches, the landscapes of Jeri are out of this world
  • Road journeys take longer up here, so as a result, often the beaches form the highways - a great way to travel!

Original Highlight

Somewhat like the Galápagos, tourist numbers on Fernando de Noronha are strictly regulated due to its rich wildlife, both marine and on land.

A note on price

Brazil is the most expensive country in South America to visit. Unfortunately, it doesn’t represent great value for money – but it’s still one of our absolute favourites. A two week itinerary starts from £3,500 per person including flights – but if you’re hoping to cover a lot of ground, expect to pay a lot more. Learn more about our pricing

Luxury Holidays - North East Brazil

Jericoacoara and Pipa on the mainland, and Fernando do Noronha island, are beach havens and full of wildlife and activities aplenty. Jericoacoara, or 'Jeri' as it's fondly referred to by locals, has a seductive and low key feel that attracts a laid back crowd looking for somewhere to relax or to enjoy windsurfing or kite surfing.

The landscape changes to the south, around Pipa, where the warm tropical seawater is frequented by turtles and dolphins and the scenery becomes a mix of dramatic cliff faces and giant sand dunes. In the village itself, there are some excellent eateries hidden away for those in the know - we will ensure you are.

Flying in to Fernando do Noronha, you are given a bird's-eye view of the islands' deserted cream beaches and hills clad in tropical vegetation. Accommodation is on the largest island, also called Fernando, and the only one that is inhabited. The island's controlled visitor numbers means that you will have the pick of the 14 beaches and can choose from those that are ideal for surfing, or others that are more sheltered and perfect for swimming, snorkelling or sunbathing. With a year-round temperature of 25°C, Fernando de Noronha is a little piece of paradise.
