Best Beach in the Island. Use comfortable shoes to get there. There are stairs that will take your breath away. Most beautiful view that I have seen. Water, comfortable shoes, sunscreen and be ready ...a lot of effort ahead.

It has won 3 times the most beautiful beach in the world an sure deserves it. Keep in mind its a protected area and the access is difficult (you must go down some stairs) , but its worth everything.

Go down the ladder to access this piece of paradise! The crystal clear water and gems that lay below will blow you out of the water. Baio is the best island on the island. a fun trip

There are two ways to get there: either by boat or climbing down a vertical ladder from a walkway high up on the rocks.

What is the meaning of best beach in the world? True, this is among the most beautiful places I have seen in the world. Part of the fun is to get there. You need to enter the park, and then you follow an elevated gangplank (to prevent you from damaging nature) to the edge of the cliff, and the way... More

Nice beach, a bit overrated? Not sure if it deserves the best beach of the world title. It depends of course on the waves and tides but I have seen better, even in noronha

The beach is picture perfect and a great place to spend the day. Plus, the ladders going down the cliffs is something different that adds a bit of fun. It looked like a lot of people were renting snorkel gear from the office/gift shop at the entrance to the beach. Bear in mind that when it's busy (lots of tours... More

The view is amazing although the access by land is very hard with vertical and irregular stairs. The beach is excellent for practice snorkel.

It's so beautiful. It's actually even more than you can see in the pictures. Getting there is part of what makes it so special. You'll need to go down this trail through a huge wall of rocks. Once you hit the bottom and look up, with all the birds and nature around, you realize how magnificent this place is. Hard... More
