Morro do Macaco, Bombinhas

4.8
Accessible by a scenic trail and 150 meters (492 ft) above sea level, Morro do Macaco offers a clear view of both sides of Canto Grande. This panoramic vista of the paradise below is reached after a steep climb. From the top, the sands of two beaches, Mariscal and Zimbros, look like you could just reach out and touch them. The trail up is long and can take up to an hour. Take lots of water, a light snack, and wear a pair of your most comfortable shoes. Along the way, take a moment to catch your breath and admire several rare species of orchids, including Laelia purpurata, official symbol of this state. Add Morro do Macaco to your Bombinhas travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Bombinhas day trip planner.

  • Climb to the top of the Hill is a real challenge which, while it can be family, requires a good physical condition and a plentiful supply of fresh water. The view beyond is up huge, but one must go knowing that it will take more than one hour to climb a very winding road, and much to lose. I recommend to go first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon. Temperatures around noon (in summer) are overwhelming.

  • Bubbling well exhausting, but worth every effort the view is wonderful. Mullet beach is the same way and is also quite beautiful.

  • Access to the Observatory is done through a very steep trail, requiring some physical conditioning. But the effort is rewarded with an incredible view of the entire region. Bring water to the walk, because there are no drinking water points on the Hill.

Where to stay in Bombinhas

Most visitors choose to stay near the coast in Bombinhas, with charming pousadas (guesthouses) and a few simple hotels offering a range of amenities. Moving inland slightly will offer more choices for budget-conscious travelers. While the backpacker hostels and small pousadas here may lack the sea views, they still put you only a few minutes' walk from the beach. For those wishing to stay for an extended period, rental apartments offer good options, with a fairly broad range covering plenty of tastes and budgets.
