“Picture perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

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. Powder white sand, lovely turquoise water...heavenly. Sometimes the waves could be quite rough, so please be careful. Unspolit paradise. A must-do if you visit Brasil.

“Excellent for snorkelling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

The best time to snorkel at the end of this beach is definitely high tide. The visibility will exceed 30 metres with so much to see including turtles an occasional reef shark and loads of large fish.

“One of prettiest beaches I've ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Best to get there early and have it nearly to yourself. The climb up and down the ladder has to be taken slowly and carefully.
