It is known that sea conditions can alter your experience at a touristic spot. Just coming back from Noronha once more reinforces this vision. There are two seasons with different sea conditions. The Sancho beach would profit from less agitated level of sea waters prevailing at local summer (June to December) . It is not a coincidence that local prices are much more expensive at the calmer season. This is true for ALL beaches of the coastal line encompassing the Mar de Dentro
Nevertheless if you come with a boat, you will still get very nice diving and swimming experiences
The classification of best beach in Brazil is probably exagerated The views are great from cliffs, and going down to the beach is fun.

Loved so much Baia do Sancho. Unfortunately it was february when I went and the weather was not very good. Definitely will be back in September.

Baia do Sancho stands out if you compare it with other beaches around the world...but if you are in Fernando de Noronha, it is just one more among the amazing other places that you will experience on the Island, such as praia dos porcos, praia da cacimba do padre, praia de Ataliaia, praia dos leoes...
Fernando do Noronha should be in every one bucket list...a must!!

This place is a paradise, you can scuba dive or snorkel, surrounded by colourful fishes. Every now and then, the joy of watching dolphins next to you! My last stay, 12 days on the Island, scuba diving, trekking.

Simply the best! Fernando de Noronha is owesome, but attention: The longstanding dry is impeding the tourism in place. Water is missing! The lack of authorities' attitude makes it a paradise in decadence: garbage thrown by visitors and residents pollutes the woods and waters; wind energy barely works and who supplies of energy are diesel generators - always connected and polluting the air! The tassa of soggiorno charged serves to be diverted and not invested in that paradise. The visual pollution also harms the place: lack of charge code of posture. Don't let your visit be in vain: manifest itself! That paradise has term !
