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

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.
