  • The Lighthouse is seen from various points of morro de São Paulo. The ascent until it is a bit tiring, no big deal, and well worth the view from the gazebo is very beautiful

  • Up there it's worth by visual that will have both on the side of the port where the sunset, as on the other side you will see the beach 1 and 2 and from there also comes the leap from gliding or. But to see the sunset indico Passagada restaurant, they don't charge to enter and the prices are cheap espresso e.g. cost R$3,00

  • Morro de São Paulo is a mix of Búzios years ago with the slopes of Ouro Preto. There are breath and legs. To get to the Lighthouse takes place in front of the beautiful church of Our Lady of light and follow towards Bat's lair. The ideal is to go around at sunset. The view is stunning.

Where to stay in Morro de Sao Paulo

A good set of pousadas (guesthouses) and small hotels nestle up as close as they can to Morro de Sao Paulo's main beach areas, offering rooms to suit a variety of budgets and tastes. Some enjoy additional facilities, such as outdoor pools, bars, and restaurants, and one of the primary concerns for visitors is securing a sea view. However, if you're looking to spend more time outside than in, you'll find plenty of affordable rooms throughout the atmospheric little village. Come peak season (December to March), however, big crowds mean that free rooms are scarce, so book ahead.
