If you love nature then this would be the perfect beach for you. You go on a hike and then climb down a few ladders between boulders to reach this beach. (If you are larger or older you will not be able to walk to the beach- try to go by boat). The beach is surrounded by a cliff with... More

I mean...it´s been voted the most beautiful beach in the world for the 2nd year in a row. What else could you expect from a place with such reputation? I imagine heaven must look similar to Sancho. Keep in mind that access isn't easy, but it´s worth every struggle. If you have any motion restraints...you should think twice though.

Beautiful view from the top, a fun hike/climb down to an amazing beach. Make sure to take snorkel gear!

This is the most beautiful beach I've ever seen,and I have been travelling a lot ;) . It's really stunning, clean, picture perfect. Especially after rain, when there is a small waterfall along the cliff, gorgeous! The route to the beach is not long, but not easy either. You have to enter a sort of chimney shaped cave to go...

Seen from uphill it has an astonishing view! When you step in the sand, the beach has a warm clear blue water which is the most amazing spot to swim! We had the lcuk to see a small turtle swiming there!!! Two ways to get there, by boat or by the road. If you take the road, to get to... More

After you take 2 metal ladders through narrow rock openings and steps you truly are on one of the best beaches in the world. Park pass required. Like most of the beaches not many people there except if a few small tour groups come in. Don't worry they leave in an hour and then the beach is yours. A MUST... More

So glad we took the time to take the ladder down to the beach! For you out there who has a fear of taking ladders, overcome this fear for an experience you will never forget. Sancho is the most beautiful beach I have ever been to in my life! Park management invested 10.6 million reais in the boardwalk that leads... More

I've walked on better sand and swam in better waters however Sancho offers a little of everything which can appeal to a wide range of people. Breathtaking views from above or below, trees for shade, wide beach area for tanning, a few waves for people who like that, yet another area with calm waters for people who prefer this, tiny...
