Morro de São Paulo

Amazing Island(Tinharé Island/near Valença-BA)/natural life/ecosystem preserved/beaches/coconut palm plantations

Ilha de Tinharé is an amazing island where is Morro de São Paulo, a hill, where on it you find a lighthouse with a beautiful view, that gives its name to the main vila.
There are 4 beatutiful most known beaches: Primeira Praia, Segunda Praia, Terceira Praia and Quarta Praia (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Beaches).
1st Beach: beach of the hotels.
2nd Beach: beach of the hotels, restaurants and nigth life.
3rd Beach: small fishers port.
4th Beach: is calm with coconut plantations.
Everyday morning, you can give small bread pieces to the fishes in the reefs of the 4th Beach beginning.
You can also take a tour around the island on small boats and see the ecosystem preserved.
To move in this island, you have to walk trough the beaches to arrive where you want. The few cars and buses are to offer transport to the most distant vilas and hotels on the island´s south side and they transit in the only existing street in the centre of the island.
To arrive in Morro you have three options:
1-Boat: get a boat in Salvador-BA port at Cidade Baixa. The boats to Morro are faster, great and in new condition and this trip takes around two hours. Boats leave to Morro every half hour;
2-Bus: by road untill Valença-BA. Take a bus at the main Salvador Bus Station (Rodoviária);
3-Small Planes: you can get get on the Salvador Airport.
Enjoy this wonderful place.

  • It is a wonderful place. Beatiful beaches, very good diving, good food and unbelievable sunsets. A paradise on earth. I was on the 2nd beach and night life is great, maybe too noisy but is close to everything.
