South AmericaOn unknown or famous islands, between art and nature, you are spoiled for choice. So we chose in a real journey around our Top 50 where to sail this winter(other destinations here). Today we are going to discover six original destinations on the South American continent!

Fernando de Noronha – Brazil

Between bays and beaches of rare beauty, you certainly won’t get bored in Fernando de Noronha, and if you are more of a relaxation type, you can quietly choose where to enjoy it. The Brazilian archipelago is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so the only care you will need to take if you plan a cruise here concerns areas whose access is strictly regulated. Snorkelers should definitely not miss the opportunity to swim with turtles. Baia do Sueste is particularly noted for the presence of sea turtles, and with high tide conditions it is possible to enjoy their presence while snorkeling. Learn about the best rental offerings.

Galapagos

Undoubtedly one of the world’s most famous archipelagos, a natural oasis with a unique ecosystem consisting of thirteen volcanic islands (seven major and six minor) located in the Pacific Ocean, about 500 miles from the west coast of South America. The archipelago belongs to Ecuador. The ideal place for those who love nature and want to feel like they are in an out-of-this-world place. Learn about the best rental offerings.

Ilha Grande – Brazil

Also nicknamed “the Caribe of Brazil,” it is a bay that hosts three hundred and sixty (yes, 360!) islands including the one from which it takes its name. Your tropical climate is mitigated by pleasant cool winds and is at its best between December and March, a period when you will find the most numerous proposals from charter companies. A curiosity: the island owes its still wild appearance to the fact that until about 15 years ago it was home to a prison. Wilder than that… Learn about the best rental offerings.

North Coast of Peru
