They say this is the most beautiful beach in the world. I am not sure about that, but definitely it is the most beautiful spot in the island. You only have access to it after paying a local tax that also allows you to visit the others beaches from the National Park. Brazilians citizens pay R$ 89 and foreigners pay... More

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.

This beach is amazing and probably the best beach I have ever been to. You need your tourist card to access it as the journey to the beach goes through a tourist centre and along man made boardwalks. There are a few nice view points across the cliffs before you descend down a ladder and some stairs to the beach.... More
