From Salvador: Morro de São Paulo Paradise Island Daytrip

2. From Salvador: Morro de São Paulo Paradise Island Daytrip

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.
