The glorious Baia do Sancho in Brazil’s Fernando de Noronha (Sancho Bay – the beach’s English name) has been named the best beach on the planet, with Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos, coming in second.

However, Aruba’s Eagle Beach and Playa Paraiso beach in Cuba’s Cayo Largo closely followed in third and fourth place.
