  • Beautiful place and great historical value. Use a little caution! The sunset from here is also too much and if you prefer not to climb the Hill, don't forget that the rise from where boats arrive gives almost the same.

  • I would love to walk there but we were informed that only by boat and guide, could create a path per track which would be great, but no one on the Hill talk about place or offers this tour.

  • See a beautiful sunset! When I was there, I had the pleasant surprise to be able to see dolphins playing carefree among the moored boats!

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.
