Abrolhos - Bahia

Abrolhos is located south of Bahia and it shelters Brazil's richest coral fauna. Five volcanic islands and a group of coral reef comprise the archipelago that has one of the largest fish gathering in the globe, both in quantity and variety. You can find in Abrolhos all kinds of fish from the South Atlantic.



Abrolhos is visited every year, from august to november, by the humback whales. This time of the year they are easily spotted in Abrolhos area perfoming a show of jumps and characterists sounds.



The whole archipelago is protected by IBAMA(The instution that take care of natural resources in Brazil), all this to keep this paradise alive.



This is also an excellent place for diving, one of the best in Brazil, with good visibility, shipwrecks and corals.

As you probably have already noticed, Abrolhos is not one of those places that are full of tourists, it´s more like a place for adventurers. Great for people that want to get in touch with nature.
