Great view from lookouts, a bit difficult to reach the beach
Jun 2021 • Couples
This was once elected the most beautiful brach in the world.
There are lookouts in both sides of the beach, one on the "Tirlah do golfinho" and another from the right part. Those views are awesome. Its worthy.
To reach the beach, its a bit complicated you have to go down for narrow stairs, and after that walk a little. Not very advisable for older people. Because its narrow, only one person can go at the same time. Therefore, there are some time tables. There are times when people can only go down and times whem you can only go back, so pay attention to it.
The beach is beautiful, and is great for snorkelling.

Truly remarkable
Feb 2021
Certainly the most beautiful beach I have ever been to and by a very big margin. The volcanic rock, the sand, the landscape, it all really leaves you rather speechless.

Some precautions worth knowing before you go
Jan 2021
It is a very beautiful beach, a pretty much postcard beach.

Good to stroll on, there are some pretty cool crabs and they're quite comfortable around people.

From the top you can see big sharks and rays swimming really close to the shore.

However,

There is a reason why almost all photos from this place don't have people swimming in them.. When I went the sea was quite choppy, and pretty impossible to snorkel or swim leisurely. The sea is the calmest first thing in the morning, so go as soon as the centre opens at 9am to get your snorkeling in, by 11am it was back to choppy. By choppy sea I mean pretty strong currents and big waves that are pretty tough even if you're a good swimmer.

There are also obstacles of getting to the beach itself that you need to be aware of. To get to the beach and back you will have to climb two huge ladders. They're sturdy, but a little unnerving, if you have a thing about heights or claustrophobia, or bad knees, I imagine it's not the experience you'd be looking for. After the ladders there are pretty steep rocky steps, but if you made it after the ladder they're fine.

Anyway, it's not really a swimming beach, there is also very little shade and it's usually taken by people who arrive early.

Worthy of the hype and ratings
Jan 2021
Sancho deserves its ratings - its absolutely a beautiful remote beach with majestic bluffs that can take your breath away. Having to descend what at first glance seems to be dangerous ladders in the cracks of the rocks just adds to the experience. But it is actually easy to get down. Be aware there are scheduled times to go up and down the ladders, so plan accordingly.

Great snorkeling
Feb 2020
Clear waters, two schools of sardines, small sharks and a lot of life in the small corals. Can be reached from the sea and from the cliffs.

One of the most Cleariest Ocean I ever seen
Feb 2019
The beach was so amazing and was very clean compared to all the beaches I went to in the United States. It was a trip going there because there is a lot of walking but it is so worth it.

Best Beach in the World
Jan 2020 • Couples
Considered by some to be the best beach in the world, this is certainly my favorite. The beach can only be reached by a walk through a wooded area along a boardwalk, followed by a descent down a long ladder through a rock crevice. Access to the beach is restricted, and is never crowded. Indeed, there are few people and if you go early in the morning, the beach is all yours. One needs to purchase a pass to obtain entrance to the national park beaches on the island of Fernando de Noronha. I felt it was certainly worthwhile to support the conservation efforts and maintenance of Noronha’s many beaches. Your pass gives you access to all the beaches in the park system.

Amazing beach
Dec 2019
It is a very beautiful beach and very well preserved. There is even a schedule for people going down on the beach and a schedule for when you can go up. The access is done through 2 stairs. Absolutely gorgeous!
