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.
