FERNANDO DE NORONHA:
A trip to Fernando de Noronha is comparable to a dream come true. It is a marine park located 350km (217mi) from the nearest coast (Natal) and 545km (338mi) from Recife. The 21 islands were formed by volcanic activity approximately 212 million years ago. The area of the main island is 26km² (10 sq mi) and it is fringed by deserted sandy beaches, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. If you are passionate about wildlife and diving, then you will love the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha.
