Just off the coast of Salvador, Morro Sao Paulo is a charming island retreat rich in colonial legacy with picturesque beaches lapped by crystal-clear waters.
A short hopper flight south of Salvador, Morro Sao Paulo is a pretty village at the northern tip of Tinhare Island. From the moment you arrive to be met by the tractor-transfer service, its charm becomes apparent. There are no cars just a series of sandy tracks and cobbled streets that lead off to the family-run pousadas and hotels that line the coast. In town, you can visit the 17th century colonial fortress before heading off to explore a series of palm-fringed beaches. Mingle with the locals and enjoy a beer on the livelier First – and Second Beach or escape to Fourth – and Fifth Beach, isolated stretches of golden sand, coral pools and mangrove forests. South of Morro Sao Paulo, Ilha Boipeba is a picturesque island retreat draped in Atlantic Rainforest and ideal for those looking for a more rustic beach escape.
