[FERNANDO DE NORONHA, BRAZIL] — As a still developing tourist destination..and only 450 tourists allowed on the island a day… the restaurant scene on Fernando de Noronha still has some ways to go.  But there are some incredible standouts I tried. And am still thinking about.

About the most dramatic is Merhulhao, right overlooking the harbor. Perfectly positioned to catch the full length of the island at sunset, you just can’t beat the view….maybe one of the best in the world. Clouds, currents, boats sailing in and out, awesome chill music, extremely nice young couple that runs it. Oh…and the food. Perfect, clean, simple seafood. Excellently prepared. Man, the energy of this place is just really remarkable.  And one of the coolest coffee preparations I’ve ever seen….

Some good tips in this Conde Nast Traveler article on Fernando de Noronha.








For me, it’s hard to start out a day in Brazil without an acai. There’s a great place in the center of the island, right on the main road, across from the Turtle Center. Nothing fancy, but a great place to plan the adventures for the day.
