Unwind at Baia do Sancho, a secluded beach and bay on UNESCO-protected Fernando de Noronha Island. Repeatedly voted the world's best beach, this stretch of sand lies nestled in a sheltered cove with crystal-clear emerald waters. Rocky slabs in the central part of the water support a diversity of marine life and provide excellent snorkeling opportunities. Observe sea turtles and corals, and enjoy swimming without damaging the wildlife. Accessible by boat or via a narrow staircase down the cliffs, the beach is home to native plants and birds. From February to June, rainwater forms two waterfalls spouting from the clifftop. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Fernando de Noronha using our trip planner.

Although in February the waves are great, the beach does not lose its beauty, and, by Toast, still has 2 waterfalls that appear shortly after the rain. The access is a little tricky for those who go on foot. If you are afraid of heights or locomotion difficulties, you will suffer to descend and climb the stairs leading to the beach. Attention! If you plan for the ascent and Descent Times (which alternate every hour).
