"To inspire those planning a beach getaway, we've surfaced the world's best beaches from the millions of our traveler reviews," said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. "Traveling to a popular beach doesn't have to be expensive; TripAdvisor can help find the best prices for highly-rated hotels and has a variety of value options for those looking to get the most out of their money while visiting one of these amazing beach destinations." "Winning a TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Beaches award is very important for Baia do Sancho and Fernando de Noronha Island, where the beach is located.
