Noronha & Nannai Honeymoon - 9 Days


This romantic itinerary is perfect for honeymooners or couples looking for a very special pampered experience in the exotic Northeast coast of Brazil.

We start in Porto de Galinhas at the Nannai, Brazil's 5-Star Tahitian-style resort. Gorgeous beaches, ideal for diving and surfing, natural swimming pools of transparent warm waters, rides around the growths of mangroves and the laying of eggs of sea turtles are some of the leisure options in the area. Our next stop on this itinerary is the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha; this is the one of the few locations in Brazil where the sun sets into the sea. The archipelago is called Fernando de Noronha. The islands are the remains of volcanic mountains jutting up from the Atlantic. There are twenty small islands, one larger one. This is one of the most spectacular destinations of Brazil, and it’s perfect for Honeymooners. This experience is as rewarding as the Big Island of Hawaii or anywhere in the Caribbean. While Fernando de Noronha is now a model environmental protection area, it is also one of Brazil's almost hidden treasures. The clarity and warmth of the water, on the equatorial stream, and the abundant underwater life makes these islands a Mecca for divers and snorkelers. There are over two hundred species of fish, plus dolphins, sea turtles, and sharks to view and photograph.

Muro Alto is one of the most beautiful beaches in the state of Pernambuco, with sunshine all year long. It is protected by reefs which form natural pools, with crystal clear waters at the perfect temperature.

The NANNAI RESORT is located 33 miles south of Recife, near Porto de Galinhas, on 30 acres of paradise called Muro Alto Beach. The hotel was conceived with ideals based on the preservation of the environment and local culture. The atmosphere and design is very Brazilian, utilizing the best of Brazilian wood and exotic foliage. The staff, which contributed on this project, was selected from the local neighborhood in order to be in-tune with the local philosophy. The Nannai receives architectural accolades for its unique layout and Feng Shui design, with all the bungalows “in” the pool, which winds around the property like a giant serpent.

Day 1 - Recife / Porto de Galinhas

Upon arrival in Recife, you will be met and driven to the Nannai, where you will be greeted with champagne and a short orientation of the resort, before being escorted to your private bungalow.

Day 2 - Porto de Galinhas

Enjoy your bungalow, private swimming pool and jacuzzi or take a romantic walk on Muro Alto beach. The Nannai has every luxury you can possibly imagine, in a perfect, lush, tropical setting. Why not take a dune buggy tour up the beach? Your guide will show you the hidden treasures of the area. You'll stop in Porto de Galinhas to take a jangada (sailing raft) across the channel to the reef, where the tide leaves thousands of fish trapped for hours, to be admired until the next tide sets them free again. Then it's on to the river, where you will take a boat ride and observe a naturalist guide catch seahorses for you to study, before he puts them back. This is a state run project which protects both the seahorses (by controlling their population) and the local shrimp population (seahorses love to eat shrimp eggs!) Then it's back to the resort for another glorious dinner.

Day 3 - Porto de Galinhas

Explore Porto de Galinhas. It is one of the liveliest beach towns in Brazil and the most visited in the Northeast, only 10 minutes from the hotel by beach buggy. As well as being a feast for the eyes, it enjoys an excellent location, right at the center of a fishing village. This beach resort has also won many fans thanks to its many bars and restaurants that offer top-quality regional cuisine, and the busiest shops in the area.

Day 4 - Porto de Galinhas

After breakfast, your private guide and driver will take you on a full day tour of Olinda. Splendid Olinda, was the original state capital until it was jealously set afire by the Dutch Prince Maurice of Nassau in 1637 to elevate his city of Recife. Built on the hills above Recife, with its many beautiful baroque churches under the shade of palm trees, it has become an artist's colony. The city has been given World Heritage Cultural Site status by UNESCO, as well as being declared a National Monument by the Brazilian government. It has fabulous artisan studios and charming sidewalk cafes to explore.
