I heard about this place before, saw some pictures, but when you see it with your own eyes it's something else. Simply amazing. The water it's perfect, saw many fishes using snorkel over there.

If you like to snorkel this is the place. The water was clear and the fish were beautiful and colorful. I was there 2 days - the first day had a swell but we still enjoyed it and the second day was even better. Absolute beautiful

It's for a very good reason it was elected the most beautiful beach in the world. The effort is worth it. Face the stairs and you will not regret it!

Baia do Sancho is an incredible experience, you reach it by sea or through some very complicated stairs. The beach is amazing, quiet, with few people, an incredible sea. It's worth a visit.
