Enjoy an active adventure in Brazil, with this trip to the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha. These remote and protected Atlantic islands 350km off the northeast coast of Brazil are little-known by most visitors, yet they are home to spectacular marine life like spinner dolphins, turtles and whales as well as colourful underwater worlds. Here, you can enjoy an ‘off-grid’ adventure exploring idyllic white beaches, year-round warm waters. Dive, snorkel or surf, or hike in an untouched paradise and enjoy some remarkable guided walks that will introduce you to the best spots on the island. Fernando de Noronha is also a perfect addition to create a truly unique Brazil honeymoon.

Today, you’ll take a guided walk to discover the many beaches and bays of the island’s ‘inner sea’ (the coastline that faces mainland Brazil), where the shimmering emerald-colour waters lap the shores.

The first stop will be Cacimba do Padre beach, one of the largest on the islands, which is characterised by its dramatic off-shore rock stacks and nesting turtles. Continue your walk to visit Porcos’ Bay, Bode’s beach and Boldró beach, and when the sea conditions are favourable – stop for an exhilarating swim and snorkel in the unbelievably crystal-clear turquoise ocean. The entire archipelago is designated as a National Park because it brims with abundant marine life – so there’s so much to experience underwater.

Today’s walk will be a total of 4 hours approximately.
