Morro de São Paulo Island
Getting Started to Know
A Short History of Morro De São Paulo
In 1531 a guy called Martim Afonso de Souza arrived at this place and decided that it would be the Tynharéa Island, but as time went by, people changed the name to TinharéIsland.
Hotels´ Reception Area
If you are staying at one of the hotels at the Quarta Praia (Fourth Beach), go directly to the Hotel Reception Area to catch the tractor to your hotel. The Hotel Reception Area is located one street behind the second beach. Each hotel has a different tractor. If the tractor is not there, please ask an attendant at the Hotels Reception Area to call the hotel to send the tractor for you.
The tractor serves as means of transportation!
To get to the hotel, you can either take a tractor or the hotel will send a van. The tractor provides for an unforgettable experience. It is the primary means of transportation into town at night.
Lots of great views
Bar, Restaurants and Tables on the Beach.
There are tables on the beach. You can have a drink, food, read a book, or just relax There are some waves at a reef that has small bay. It is a perfect right formation that breaks with more frequency in the winter and it is advisable to use boot, because the point is very shallow.
Which beach to stay? Which hotel to stay in?
For Peace, I like the Fourth Beach and hotel
"Quarta Praia" (Fourth Beach) - The Fourth beach is the best in Morro. It's the perfect place to get away from it all. Nothing is seen in the distance but palm trees, sand and sea. The only problem if you stay there is that it's far away from the village, so you won't be able to go there on foot. Many pousadas offer transportation service to and from the village
The Fort here
What a beautiful view!
While in Morro de São Paulo, try to climb the hill to the lighthouse. From there you'll get a beautiful view of the village and its beaches. And go also to the old portuguese fortress. Next to it there's an unbelievable natural swimming pool. The paths to both places start near the Portaló, an old stone arch located next to Morro's pier.
Town Nightlife Bar and Restaurants
Food and Eating Out in Morro de Sao Paulo
A great restaurant on the island is Praia do Encanto. It is located on the Praia do Encanto beach Hotel. The service is great, the food is spectacular, and the prices are very reasonable. To get there, take the hotel bus on the second beach and enjoy.
By boat: Leaving from Salvador, take a fast motorboat (2 hours), or a slow boat (2:30 hours), at "Mercado Modelo". It costs R$ 50 (USD 25, more or less.
By airplane: 20 minutes of flight, leaving the international airport of Salvador landing in "Fazenda Caiera" or in a landing track after the Fourth Beach.and costs R$ 185 (about USD 95).
Car or Bus: go by car to Valencia and, there, take a fast motorboat (30 minutes), or slow boat (1 hour) to Morro de Sao Paulo.
The course of boat from Mercado Modelo to Bom Despacho, bus from Bom Despacho to Valença and boat from Valença to Morro de São Paulo take more time (about 4 hours) but it is cheaper and won't make you too sick than the straight course of fast motorboat or catamaran from the Mercado Modelo to Morro de São Paulo (about 2 hours).
Beaches, Villages, Towns, and Etc. Within Range of Morro de Sao Pulo
Getting Out of Town: Morro de Sao Paulo Small Island Excursions and Alternatives
A very interesting daily trip from Morro is going by boat to Boipeba Island. There you'll find a nice natural swimming pool called Morerê, in which you can snorkel, beautiful beaches, such as Tassimirim (considered one of Brazil's 10 best beaches, according to Guia 4 Rodas) and good, reasonably-priced restaurants at Boca da Barra beach. The return to Morro is done through the mangrove swamps of the Rio do Inferno. Some tours also stop at Cairu, a little village that has one of Brazil's oldest churches.
Every year, many African Americans travel to Salvador to learn about the many African traditions that are still in existence there. Seldom do they venture outside of the city to explore other parts of the state of Bahia. There is so much more waiting for them to see in Bahia.
One particular place is the island of Morro de Sao Paulo. It can best be described as paradise. It is a very small island. The island consists of four beaches and each one is generally within walking distance of the other. You can relax on the beach, horseback ride, kayak, and snorkel. It is safe to walk around late at night. There are many restaurants and the prices are fairly reasonable.
There is one interesting thing about Morro de Sao Paulo. Cars are not allowed on the island. You can arrange to have someone put your luggage in a cart and transport it to your hotel. Some hotels, like the ones at the fourth beach, require a tractor to get the hotel. It makes for an interesting ride.
If you are traveling to Salvador, please consider extending your trip so that you can see the beautiful island paradise of Morro de Sao Paulo.
