Fernando de Noronha is a group of islands about 350km offshore from northeastern Brazil. The volcanic formed terrain is home to several endemic species and shelter for migratory birds, while the surrounding sea is visited by sea tortoises, dolphins and thousands of fish species. The interior landscape was largely destroyed following human occupation, especially in World War II as an airbase was set up for north-american aircraft bound for western Africa. Ever since, nature has regained ground and human occupation has been forcefully controlled, with limits to number of residents and visitors in the archipelago.

The following photographs were taken early last year. Primarily used was the Hasselblad 503x with 50mm, 80mm and 180mm lenses, with Fujifilm Reala and Kodak Portra 160VC. Velvia 50 was sporadically used. A Canon 40D with the 17-40mm complemented the set.
































Other photographs can be seen here.

Flights come in from either Recife (REC) or Natal (NAT) daily.
There are plenty of boats available, either for scuba-diving or trips around the island. There are no large hotels, but rather small "pousadas", which are usually family run. They range from outright simple to luxurious. 'Pousada Ze Maria' is a famous and upclass lodge. You can only enter the island with lodging reservations, and there's an environmental-protection fee that becomes more expensive the longer you stay in Fernando de Noronha.

Since it's a complex tourist destination, it's better to check with a travel agent for detailed planning.
