Baía do Sancho

Top choice in Fernando de Noronha

The most stunning stretch of sand on an island of magnificent beaches, Baía do Sancho is a protected cove of brilliant turquoise waters backed by forest-clad cliffs. The difficult access – visitors must either descend the cliffs on a series of ladders or arrive by boat – just adds to the wow factor one you finally set foot on its soft silky sands.
