Thanks to its geographical position, the Rio Grande do Norte’ s coasts get North, South, Southeast and East swells that allows surfing at any moment of the year. The best spots are located between Tibau do Sul and Praia da Pipa,the best period is from November to March, thanks to the North swell that comes from the Atlantic North and the end of the trade winds.

Les Trips :

  • Fernando de Noronha

Travellers the world over are discovering the untouched beauty of the Fernando de Noronha islands. Over 70% of the archipelago has been declared a National Marine Park. A model of environmental preservation, the Noronha islands small scale tourism industry is expanding slowly, working side by side with local authorities to ensure the continued existence of the primeval nature that exists within its environment.
Things to See & Do in Fernando de Noronha Sancho BayTop Sancho Bay can be accessed either by boat, by swimming or trekking, or on a trail from Baia dos Porcos. It is one of the best beaches to soak in the pleasure of diving in Fernando de Noronha.
The beach is quiet and secluded, and all around the turquoise waters are so clear that it is a joy to swim in these waters. Snorkelling in these waters will give you a glimpse of paradise where you will see the most beautiful species of fish and corals. You can also view lots of turtles and moreas. A big reef wall separates Sancho Bay from Baia dos Porcos.

You can easily snorkel around the beaches of Fernando de Noronha. Snorkelling at Baía do Sueste is a good idea as it has shallow waters which are protected from the winds.
A good guide will help you find the best spots for snorkelling and also help locate sea turtles which are camouflaged in the clean blue-green waters. If you want to try something more adventurous, then do check out the ‘aquasub’ used by marine biologists to study sea turtles. The aquasub basically pulls the snorkeller along with it around the smaller islands of the archipelago so that larger areas are explored with ease.

Some of the best surfing sites can be found at Fernando de Noronha. Bode, Boldro, Meio and Cacimba do Padre are some of the popular surfing spots. The months from December to March are the best season for surfing. Check out the weather in Fernando de Noronha for more climate information.

Boat tours of the island Top
Fernando de Noronha boat tours have been organised by the locals, taking tourists along the inner coast of Fernando de Noronha to Ponta da Sapata, which is a narrow peninsula in the south west extremity of the island. All tour boats charge the same and this is perhaps the best way to see Spinner Dolphins at close range.

To see the wonderful acrobatics performed by the dolphins you will need to reach the Dolphin Bay at the crack of dawn. They can be seen from a cliff above the bay. Do get a pair of binoculars or a camera with a zoom lens so that you do not miss any of the astonishing action! A dune buggy will take you on the early morning journey to the Dolphin’s Bay viewpoint. If you miss the dolphins at sunrise, you can still get to see them a little later in the day. You can even get a better look at the dolphins as they play with the boats.

Atalaia Beach – a natural aquariumTop
Fernando de Noronha is home to Atalaia Beach, which is placed in such a way that water pools are formed between reefs. These individual pools form natural aquariums when the tide is low and the fish tend to get trapped in these pools till high tide comes again. It is a truly unique experience but you’ll require luck and patience to partake of it. For one, the winds have to be in the right direction and the tides at the right level. You also have to sign up first thing in the morning so that you are amongst the first 25 who are permitted to witness the experience. The authorities are so particular about the environment that you will not be allowed here if you have applied sunscreen. Paddle around the islandTop Another way to see the island is to paddle around the island, getting some exercise in the process! These tours are two to three hours long and are conducted twice a day. The first one is at 8am and the second at 3pm. A motor boat also accompanies you, carrying equipment and cold drinks you may want to bring along. If you want to see the spectacular sunset then opt for the afternoon ride.
