Wow, wow, wow! You just HAVE to go here to appreciate he beauty of this beach. This beach is amazing. There are so many aspects of it that would make you want to visit it. Climbing down the cliff face is much easier than the reviews suggest, the two ladders are extremely secure and they break up the climb down... More

When planning to go to Sancho's beach, be smart and enjoy the other attraction nearby, since they begin in same visitor's center. The cliff offer you an amazing sight seem so don't forget to bring your camera!! If you descend the cliff to the beach, remember to bring water, and food if you plan to stay a couple of hours....

Simply put, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Either for snorkelling or relaxing, Sancho is one of the most beautful places you will be able to visit in noronha. It lives up to the title of "The Best Beach in Brazil"

One of the most beautiful place I have ever met. Be a little careful before entering the sea, because sometimes appear a sequence of large waves. Outside this is a peaceful place.

As you walk through a small forest trail you can' t imagine what awaits you... the view you have is heavenly!!!!! No photo in the world could ever give you the feeling you have when you're standing up there and watching what seems to be a mirage! A must see in brazil!

We spent an idyllic week in Noronha in April. It was simply bliss. Baia do Sancho deserves it's place at Number 1. It's not being easy to get to only intensify it's position as 'Numero Uno' in Noronha. Descending the cliff to access the beach via the ladder is an adventure. But the beach.... now that's awesome.
