One of the best place from this island. really, the water is cristal clear, the fishes are swimming around you and they are, literally, eating from your hand. on the other side, the food prices are higher than island’s average.

On low tide you can walk here from Morro. I think I'd prefer to get there by horse-ride (either way in or out). Beach is really nice and quiet. With the "vola a ilha" (round the island tour) you visit the natural pools a bit...More

We could walk here from our resort (little far) but when we arrived we were surprised of the beauty of this beach. Quiet, locals live here and there are some basic but good restaurants serving great fish dishes.

if you like the night in town,this is the place. All restaurants are over priced and too loud, live music everywhere competing with the next doors... annoying.

The best beach at Morro de Sāo Paulo by far. You may snorkel and see some marine life. The bad point: prices for drinks and food. They will charge you whatever they want. You will pay as if you were at Paulista Av. In Sāo...More
