Full description
Depart Salvador and journey by ferry to Itaparica Island. Then take a short drive to the city of Valencia, and continue by speedboat to what is affectionately known as "The Hill" by Bahian locals. On arrival at Morro de São Paulo, discover beaches of white sand, crystal-clear waters, coconut trees and dense Atlantic forest. Relax in the off-beat location, characterized by beaches with numbers instead of names. Experience the friendly village atmosphere, where cars are forbidden and the hospitable people hang out in the bars and restaurants. Take part in optional activities such as horseback rides and zipline adventures, or just wander among the many enchanting sights. Suitable for all ages and tastes, Morro de São Paulo is home to cheerful dancing and cocktails on the beach. Join the locals and drink caipirinhas, or dip your toes in the calm waters of the ocean. Alternatively, you can take the 2-hour catamaran direct from Salvador to Morro de São Paulo if you want more time on the island. There is also the option to spend the night at Morro de São Paulo should you wish to linger a little longer at the end of the day. Return to Salvador in the late afternoon if you don't want to take advantage of this option.

Very nice excursion very well organized and excellent support. The guide picked me up at 05:00 in the morning there were already people on the bus, then they took us to the port to take the ferry. As soon as we arrived on the island a bus was waiting for us then we took an hour and 10 minutes by bus, then we took a boat that took us to Morro de São Paulo island the trip by boat lasted about ten minutes. We arrived around 09:00 on the island. The guide gave us a lot of explanations on the island on the things to see, on the different beaches. We left the island of Morro de São Paulo at 3:30 p.m. to arrive at the hotel around 7:30 p.m. I am very happy with the excursion. I highly recommend it, especially since the beaches of Morro de São Paulo are magnificent, they have very fine sand, the water is warm and the color of the water is very beautiful, turquoise blue, crystal clear green. I had a very nice day.

The -only- negative was that we specifically booked the trip with an english tour, and not having that made for a very confusing morning. The destination, however, was incredible. Morro de Sao Paulo was a major highlight of our trip. The guide was super friendly, the coach bus was comfortable, but a bit cold since we only packed for heat, and we couldnt understand any of his explanation of what to expect. Overall worth the confusion though. Giving the guide a five star rating because he really did care about giving everyone the best experience, even if we couldn't understand him haha. Very charismatic.

A natural paradise, the guides, although they did not know Spanish, were attentive to us at all times.
