Morro de Sao Paulo

When to go

Jan-March

Ideal length

4 nights

Transfer time

1 hour flight from Patagonia

Morro de Sao Paulo is a small island situated off the southern coast of Salvador.  Remotely perched at the northern tip of Ilha de Tinhare, Morro’s appeal stems from its relaxed pace (there are no cars on the island) and its unique geography: three jungle-topped hills on a point at the meeting of the mangrove-lined Canal de Taperoa and a clear, shallow Atlantic.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN MORRO DE SAO PAULO

FONTE DO CEU WATERFALL

Hike to the small Fonte do Ceu waterfall.  This passes through the neighbouring village of Gamboa, with an opportunity to do a bit of body painting from a cliff of coloured clays

THE LIGHTHOUSE

Built in 1835 it affords a fantastic view over Morro’s beaches and has a zip line descending to Primeira Praia!

FORT RUINS

The town’s icon is a 17th-century carved-stone Fortress Gate, which welcomes each arrival from its position above the dock. Around the corner at the point are the fort ruins (1630). Catching the rare sight of the sun setting over the river and mangroves from the fort is a visitor ritual.
