North East Brazil
At the North Eastern tip of Brazil is Jericoacoara, or ‘Jeri’ as it’s fondly referred to by locals. Its low key attitude attracts a laid back crowd of travellers, looking for somewhere to relax or to enjoy windsurfing or kite surfing.
Finished off with coconut trees and miles of pristine white beaches, the landscape is out of this world.
Further south, the small fishing village of Pipa perches on cliffs overlooking some of Brazil’s finest beaches. The warm tropical seawater is frequented by turtles and dolphins and scenery is a mix of dramatic cliff faces and giant sand dunes. In the village, there are some excellent eateries hidden away for those in the know – we will ensure you are.
220 miles from the mainland east of Pipa lies the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha - UNESCO Natural Heritage site - consisting of 21 small volcanic islands, isolated in the equatorial South Atlantic. Flying in, you are given a bird’s-eye view of the 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.

Above all, I want to highlight your man in Fernando, Lisandro. You have a true asset there, he knows everything and everyone, and adds a level of inclusion, involvement and immersion in the island and...
