...a village with no cars,
an island where there are no banks and no worries. A
place with an intense nightlife and paradisaical beaches.
You will find that in Morro de Sao Paulo,
located in the Tinharé island, just about 60 kilometers
south of Salvador, Bahia. To get there you must travel
2 hours by catamaran boat
or take an air-taxi, a small
plane with capacity for about 6 people.
Some of the beaches of
Morro de Sao Paulo are named due to
their order in the coast. The First
Beach is very close to the village and become very
popular between the villagers. The Second
Beach is all about partying. There are people playing
capoeira, frescobol and soccer during the day and having
party all night long. In the Third
Beach you can take a boat to visit neighbor islands.
The Fourth Beach is very
peaceful, quite like the Gamboa
Beach. It is also surrounded by ecological paradises:
Praia do Encanto, Garapuá,
and the neighbor island of Boipeba.

Preservation tax and port tax of Morro de São Paulo
Visitors must pay an 'island
preservation tax' of R$ 15 upon arrival, regardless of
how long they plan to stay in Morro de Sao Paulo.
Funds are used primarily for waste disposal. When
leaving the island there is a R$ 0.62 tax at the port,
unrelated to the preservation tax. This tax is due
to use the docks and it is also collected at
Gamboa, Atracadouro and Valença ports.
We spent our last
vacation at Morro de Sao Paulo.
The place is fabulous! The beaches are gorgeous…
the people are great! We loved it!
