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.

  • Sancho was a disappointment after everybody was going on this is the best beach in the world. Crowded as well. The same see animals as here you can see better, and for free, at the Porto beach.

  • This was once elected the most beautiful brach in the world. There are lookouts in both sides of the beach, one on the "Tirlah do golfinho" and another from the right part. Those views are awesome...
