“absolut beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

This is one of the most beautiful places i have ever been. the beach has it all: white sand, shade, clear blue water, amazing views and a rather little adventure to climb down there.
Just amazing, I want some day to go back.

“The most beautiful in Noronha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Simply the most beautiful beach in Noronha. Peaceful and well preserved as few yet. The beach is surrounded by a large rock and the sea water is very clear. Access is not very easy because you need to go downstairs in a tight space between two large rocks, but when you get there, you will see that all your effort will have been worthwhile. Be careful if you're with children or elderly people. It's an incredible place, but do not forget that is a wild beach with open sea.

“When difference of season matters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

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.

“Just one of the most divine beaches of Fernando de Noronha...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

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!!
