Flavio and I decided to meet on my last day on the island, to go to one of the most remote beaches.Getting there was great, and we took a bunch of pictures again!
Sitting here in cold and grey London, I can’t believe I was there a few months ago… It’s time for some beach again…
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, so we had to leave the beach in time for my plane.
Flavio proved to be an interesting guy and a great guide at the same time! I am sure that without him the Noronha experience wouldn’t have been half as interesting 🙂
Verdict: If you ever go to Fernando de Noronha, don’t do a guided tour… rent a buggy and go around the island on your own… or – even better – try to meet Flavio who will take you around!!! Just learn some Portuguese first! 🙂
I left the island with kind of mixed feelings… This island is very very beautiful, with some of the most amazing beaches I have ever seen, and snorkelling was fantastic, however I think it is quite overpriced (especially the scuba diving) and perhaps a little overrated. Also, it’s a very touristic place – even though it’s not very crowded, everything goes around tourists! Even nightlife is strange, as the people who work as guides / scuba instructors during the day will be the people playing drums in nightclubs in the evening, and asking you to dance with them when they are not playing…
(…I think I am risking being hated by all my Brasilian friends… but well, I don’t like to lie! At the same time, coming from a beach country, I have very high standards when it comes to islands and beaches!)
