Simply the most beautiful beach in Noronha. Peaceful and well preserved as few yet. The beach is surrounded by a large rock and the sea water is very clear. Access is not very easy because you need to go downstairs in a tight space between two large rocks, but when you get there, you will see that all your effort... More

It is known that sea conditions can alter your experience at a touristic spot. Just coming back from Noronha once more reinforces this vision. There are two seasons with different sea conditions. The Sancho beach would profit from less agitated level of sea waters prevailing at local summer (June to December) . It is not a coincidence that local prices... More

Just back again from the Iberostar Mojito Cayo Coco. Still the best 5 years in a row. We were able to see & visit with all of our extended family. I am writing this really just to ALERT anyone who may be disabled or has an injury that needs strong meds. I guess it's my fault for not checking, I... More

Baia do Sancho stands out if you compare it with other beaches around the world...but if you are in Fernando de Noronha, it is just one more among the amazing other places that you will experience on the Island, such as praia dos porcos, praia da cacimba do padre, praia de Ataliaia, praia dos leoes... Fernando do Noronha should be... More

This place is a paradise, you can scuba dive or snorkel, surrounded by colourful fishes. Every now and then, the joy of watching dolphins next to you! My last stay, 12 days on the Island, scuba diving, trekking.

Simply the best! Fernando de Noronha is owesome, but attention: The longstanding dry is impeding the tourism in place. Water is missing! The lack of authorities' attitude makes it a paradise in decadence: garbage thrown by visitors and residents pollutes the woods and waters; wind energy barely works and who supplies of energy are diesel generators - always connected and...

Crystal clear water. Sharks. Turtles. Sting Rays. Accessible by 200ft ladder in a cave....Only 450km from mainland Brazil. Heaven.

Incrediable view, blue warm water...bring food, water, sunshade and your snorkel...People with physical disabilities or difficulties to move are probably not able to get there. Just give a check before getting there,
