Lonely cove on the way to Gamboa beach, in Morro de São Paulo

These days, I walk the streets of Alicante dressed in a sweater, jacket and scarf and I find it hard to believe that only a month ago I was wandering, in a swimsuit, through the beaches and forests of the island of Tinharé, in the Brazilian state of Bahia.

After spending a few days in the vibrant Salvador of Bahia and the magnificent and endless forests of the Diamond Plated, I decided to spend my last days in Brazil discovering a nearby island.

Although a good Brazilian friend advised me several places in the area (Itacaré, Barra Grande and Boipeba were some of them), I ended up opting for the little one town of Morro de São Paulo.

I made the decision, fundamentally, for logistical issues. Of all the options, it was the closest and, from what I had heard and read (only a couple of things, because it has been one of the least prepared trips I have made in recent years), although perhaps it was not so virgin how Boipeba or Barra Grande, you could get very good game with the right attitude.

After spending four nights there, I found that my decision was more than right.

Here you have some practical tips for traveling to Morro de São Paulo.

How to get to Morro de São Paulo

Ferry to Morro

The place from which most people travel to Morro de São Paulo is Salvador de Bahía.

The destination is so popular among Brazilians, Argentines and Uruguayans, that there are few who fly, from far away places, to the international airport of Salvador to enjoy this paradise of beaches, forests and parties.

Once you are in Salvador de Bahía, The options to reach Morro de São Paulo are, mainly, three.

The most expensive is fly. Small planes depart from the Luis Eduardo Magalhães International Airport and cover the journey to the island of Tinharé in about 20 minutes. It is obviously the most expensive option and a one-way ticket can cost between R $ 250 and R $ 350 (R $: Brazilian Reals).

The second option It's the one I chose, the direct ferry. As I arrived from Lençois (in the Chapada Diamantina) to the Rodoviària (bus station) of Salvador de Bahia, I took a taxi that took me to the Maritime Terminal, located in the city center, right next to the Model Market. The price of the taxi was R $ 15. You can also travel from the station to the pier by bus (it costs R $ 3), but the truth is that at 6 in the morning I didn't feel like looking for which one I had to take and queue. I am getting old.

Travel insurance to Brazil
