Welcome to Morro de São Paulo


Remotely perched at the northern tip of the Ilha de Tinharé, Morro’s appeal stems from its relaxed pace – no cars are allowed on the island – and unique geography: three jungle-topped hills on a point at the meeting of the mangrove-lined Canal de Taperoá and a clear, shallow Atlantic.

During the high season the village booms, dozens of vendors mix fresh-fruit caipirinhas (cocktails) on the sand, and lighthearted dancing and music enliven the beaches every night.
