  Morro de São Paulo > Transportation


There are no private vehicles on the island, only utility vehicles for the guests of the most distant hotels.

There are several boats linking Morro de Sao Paulo to Gamboa and Valença.

To Boipeba Island, there is only one boat per day, which makes the trip around Tinharé Island.

The only road is from the village to Fourth and Encanto Beaches. Beyond that, there are only paths which can be crossed by hiking or on horseback, and some which can be crossed on a tractor or a 4x4 vehicle.

In the village there are some steep pathways, and luggage can be carried by porters. However, it is best to set a price before hiring them.

There are single and twin-engine planes that leave from the international airport of Salvador, and arrive in about 20 minutes at the Third or Fourth Beach.
