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.

Baia do Sancho Reviews
Uma das praias mais lindas que já vi, pena que o acesso é difícil pois é preciso descer uma escada dentro de uma fenda e mais uns 300 degraus morro abaixo, praia pra quem gosta de trilhas e aventuras,... more »One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, pity that access is difficult because it is necessary to descend a ladder inside a crack and a few more 300 steps down hill, beach for those who like trails and adventures, there is no way to take seniors and children , just to observe from the lookout or boat that does not arrive at the seaside!
Vale a pena caminhar por toda trilha e refazer o caminho durante uma viagem! O lugar tem uma energia surreal sem contar o privilégio que se tem ao descer à praia bem cedinho e ter ela toda pra você more »It is worth walking across the trail and retracing the path during a trip! The place has a surreal energy without telling the privilege that one has to descend to the beach very early and have it all to you
BEST PLEACE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
