Morro Things to Do

  • Around the island

    Once you are in Morro de São Paulo there are some tours to be done.We took a full day tour around the island, amazing...Beware and compare prices. The tour makes some stops on the way and it is possible to eat lobster and oyster at the restaurants. It also stops at an old monastery very interesting to be visited.

  • The Lighthouse Stunning View

    It is the most outstanding construction in Morro de Sao Paulo. A friendly arm for those at the sea as well as for those on land, it is a perfect spot to admire a calm night, full of stars. You can reach the Lighthouse through a trail that begins in front of the Church. There are two belvederes close to it, the northward one is where you can see the...

  • Watch a sunset from the fort

    Ull need about 20 min from 2nd beach to the fort ..theres also a fortress beach that appears only during low tide and which reveals a strip of sand next to the natural swimming pools that are ideal for snorkeling. Access, as one might guess, is located at the end of the fortress ruins.

  • Strolling on the beach

    Strolling on the huge and deserted 4th beach, jogging, playing frisco ball or having a dip in the shallow and crystal clear natural swimming pools, or sipping caipirinhas on the load and popular 2nd beach, or just stare at the guys jumping from the top of the hill on the 1st beach..theres loads to do and fill in a whole happy happy summer:)

  • Snorkelling

    I have enjoyed snorkelling much more than the diving trips to be honest. Combined with a very short kayak trip to a tiny sand island, a nice guide – Gabriel and wake up at 9 as opposed to 6 for the diving was definitely better choice. Plus we had better visibility, same fish and corral delightful scenery and less strong currents..

  • Diving

    We weren’t very lucky for the diving unfortunately. December and January are meant to be the best months however the plankton was growing, we had very strong currents and bit of the diving instructors were not paying enough for our both trips we had 5 meters visibility which was quite distressful when you are used with more...

  • Excursions

    Daily Excursion to Boipeba and Cairu' by boat. You do many activities like snorkelling, visiting Cairu' and you can enjoy a really nice travel on the boat that brings you back to Morro by passing through the river. Really beautiful views !

  • Take a ride...

    They have a fun little cable ride down to 2nd beach. It starts at the top of the mountain where the light house sits. Here is a picture of a group of daredevil girls before they take the big plunge.

  • Ecological walk

    Another nice option is the ecological walk. You spend the morning walking on the island, discovering a cascade, doing the pink argilla bath and finally resting on a nice small restaurant/bar on the beach.


Morro Restaurants

  • Café das Artes

    Cool and arty place with lots of books and a poussada, we had some quick lunch before leaving. They have some nice cafe frappe, friendly staff and cool music.

  • Poussada Da Torre

    This was the best meal in Morro but probably the slowest ever. The guys serving us must have had at least 2 joints while serving us during 4 hours almost:) Delicious lobster, great salad and amazing desert - surprise fruit salad with mango icecream and passion fruit yammiii...

  • Restaurante Bianco & Nero

    They have delicious pizza cooked in firewood ovens, nice lobster (though frozen as January is not the lobster season) and good wine. We had a very funny story here as the card didnt work, and we only paid the next day. Very nice owner..

  • Tangerina

    Nice salad, fish and shrimps. Right in the main square so ull have plenty of fun watching the people passing by, listening to the spontaneous concerts and various people stopping by and dancing..

  • The Best pizza in Morro

    I loved this place, the attention, the food, the view...Ame este lugar, la atencion, la comida, la vista...Eu adorei isse lugar, a atençao, a comida, a vista... Pizza 4 quijos & pizza a moda.Pao de queijo!!!

  • Good value for money

    It was located underneath a Pousada in the centre called Baleai. It was quite small with a cosy kind of feel. Steak wrapped in Bacon served with mashed Potatoes for the main and the fish balls were good as a starter because they were composed 95 percent out of fish rrather than 30-40 percent!


Morro Nightlife

  • Morro by night

    A couple of suggestions:- Start the evening on the third beach. The night falls, the beach dissapears, th stars come out one by one, u could simply stare at the amazing sky while sipping our caipirinha and eventually listen to some U2 or sweet Brazilian music- Have dinner somewhere nice in the village - main square or highstreet, have a capirinha,...

  • Party every night

    All the "Segunda Praia" is a big party, you have many options of music, drinks and food. Just take a walk!Toda la segunda praia es una gran fiesta, hay varias opciones de musicas, bevidas y comidas.Solo da un paseo! As you like!!Como te guste!

  • "Town Square Roscas"

    There isnt really very much to do at night at Morro, exept from drinking the fabulous Fruitcocktails which are served on the "Town Square!" That is if you dont prefere yo go to bars and restaurants on Second Beach!There you can drink some faboluos cocktails freshly shaken from the Bar that is opened from around 20.00 at night! I like it, because...


Morro Transportation

  • Plane

    The smallest plane that we ever flew with but much nicer than the catamaran. It costs about 170 reais as opposed to the catamaran which is 50 but this is money well spent:)

  • Catamaran

    Morro is 2 hours and a half by catamaran from Salvador (Mercado modelo). Though normally I very much enjoy the views and the cruise, this one is kind of rough and there are lots of people getting sick on board …so its not my idea of enjoyable…

  • Buggies

    There are some boogies that you can rent or use as taxis, but I never took one, it's so nice just to walk arround!!!Hay algunos boggies que se alquila o usan como taxi, pero yo no tome ninguno es tan lindo caminar ahi!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you like shopping, forget about this place! There is almost nothing to buy! I think that was one of the things that made me LOVE this place!

    Si te gusta comprar, olvidate de este lugar!
    Casi no hay nada para comprar! Creo que esta fue una de las razones por las que AME este lugar!

    What to buy: Sunblocks, water, beer, coke and food...

    protectores solares, agua, cerveza, Coca Cola y comida...

    What to pay: Its not cheap (for argentinians and brazilians).
    No es barato (para argentinos y brasileros)

Morro Warnings and Dangers

  • Credit card fraud

    Be prepared that it is extremely difficult to get cash on Morro. When we were there there was only one ATM and it did not accept our bank cards, we had to take an hour boat ride to a neighboring island to get cash (which was kinda fun actually). So, because of this we ended up using our credit cards quite a bit (they are widely accepted). We used a...

  • Take your cash before you go

    There is one cashpoint (ATM) on the island that is located in the superarket in the town centre. It does not take British debit cards and probably not any foreign ones either, so stack your cash before you get there!

Morro What to Pack

  • Comfortable shoes and repellent!!!

    something not to big or heavy! (you'll thank me later) Almost nothing, you don't need it to sunbath!Take comfortable shoes, look at the picture of the streets...Casi nada, no lo necesitaras para tomar sol!Llevar zapatos comodos, mira las fotos de las calles... Ask there about the "bicho do pe", there's a fly that if bites you, gives you a kind of...

  • Mosquitos gonna get you!

    Something not too heavy becuse when you get of the boat... there is alot of uphill walking to be done... so a light rucksack will suffice. Mosquito spray... BRING it... I left mine behind in Salvador and they had run out in the main shop at the islands centre... so I was screwed and they really got me!

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
