Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago of over 20 islands, which is located over 350 kilometres from mainland Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. The islands are on the UNESCO World Heritage List for their extraordinary features, including flora and fauna and unspoilt natural environments.
In total, the islands cover around 26 square kilometres, of which the main island has already around 18 square kilometres. The total population is around 3,000, all living on the main island. Other islands include Ilha Rata, Ilha do Meio, Ilha Sela Gineta and Ilha Rasa.
People come here to relax, enjoy the quiet lifestyle but above all they flock into the islands because of the fantastic flora and fauna, including
two endemic birds: the Noronha Elaenia and the Noronha Vireo, which are present on the main island; the Noronha Vireo also lives on Ilha Rata. There are many other endemic species, including specific rodents. The marine life is overwhelming, including sea tortoises, dolphins, albatrosses and many other species which are frequently spotted.
