Baia do Sancho is an incredible experience, you reach it by sea or through some very complicated stairs. The beach is amazing, quiet, with few people, an incredible sea. It's worth a visit.

This beach is amazing and probably the best beach I have ever been to. You need your tourist card to access it as the journey to the beach goes through a tourist centre and along man made boardwalks. There are a few nice view points across the cliffs before you descend down a ladder and some stairs to the beach.... More

This is by far one of the most amazing beaches I've been in my life. I her been to many as I love beaches! It is moderately difficult to get to the actual beach. You have to clim down and up on a ladder. It is a very sturdy and safe ladder. If you do not have mobility problems, it... More

This beach is stunning. From behind, with the tall cliffs and the chattering of birds, It's like a dino free Jurassic park. There were always enough people on the beach to make you feel safe, but not so many that it felt crowded. With long stretches of pristine sand, plenty of wildlife and clear blue seas, this beach is definitely... More

One of the most beautiful beaches I have been to. It has everything. Very clean transparent water, perfect for snorkel, white sand and nice environment, no crowds.. probably due to the difficult access (vey steep ladder after walking around 10-15 min). Nevertheless it is whorthy a visit!

A short trek to the vertical, tight ladder that will lead you to the best beach in the world. Go early and you will be the only ones on the beach, clear waters, bring snokelling gear, fins and life jacket optional. Tons of fish, turtles, beyond words. It is not suggested for the faint of heart etc, as the way... More
