Fernando de Noronha

Fernando de Noronha Park

Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago belonging to the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, consisting of 21 islands and islets, occupying an area of 26 square kilometers, situated in the Atlantic Ocean, east of Rio Grande do Norte. District is a state of Pernambuco since 1988, when it ceased to be a federal territory, whose acronym was FN, and the capital was Vila dos Remedios. It is managed by a general manager appointed by the state government. The main island is 17 km ² and is located 545 km to 360 km from Recife and Natal.

After a campaign led by environmentalist gaucho Jose Truda Palazzo Jr., in 1988 most of the archipelago was declared a National Park, about 8 km ², for the protection of endemic species found there and the area of concentration of spinner dolphins (Stenella longirostris ), who gather daily at the Dolphin Bay - the place of more regular observation of the species on the planet. The shopping center is in Noronha Vila dos Remedios, but is not considered to be the island capital of a state district. The national park is now managed by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio)

The National Marine Park of Fernando de Noronha is a unit of strictly protected areas administered by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation - ICMBio. Created in 1988, occupies most of the archipelago and has a variety of unique flora and fauna. Great place for tourism, however, due to surveillance ICMBio, some islands have controlled visitation.

Diving

Fernando de Noronha is a place for recreational diving internationally. With warm waters around it, diving to depths of 30 to 40 meters can be done nicely without using a wetsuit.

Near the island there is the possibility of doing an advanced dive and visit the Corvette Ipiranga, which lies at 62 meters depth, after being intentionally sunk at that point, after a shipping accident.

The island has three dive operators, offering different levels of service quality.

Moreover, the archipelago has interesting points of free diving, as the natural pool of Atalaia, the wreck of the Port of San Antonio, slab Boldró, among others.

The archipelago has a diverse marine life, it is common to several species of reef fish, turtles and sharks and possibly dolphins.
