I walk the streets of Alicante dressed in sweater, jacket and scarf and I can hardly believe that only a month ago was wandering me in a swimsuit, the beaches and forests of the island of Tinhare in the Brazilian state of Bahia. After spending a few days in the vibrant Salvador and the magnificent and endless forests of the Chapada Diamantina I decided to spend my last days in Brazil discovered a nearby island.

Of all the options, it was the closest, and from what I had heard and read just a few things, because it has been one of the least prepared trips I have done in recent years although perhaps not so virgin as Boipeba or Barra Grande he could be out very good match with the right attitude. After spending four nights there, I found that my decision was more than correct.

The most expensive is flying. Small planes depart from Luis Eduardo Magadha’s International Airport and cover the journey to the island of Tinhare in about 20 minutes.  The second option is the one that I chose, the direct ferry. As I arrived from Lençois (on the Chapada Diamantina) to the Road (bus station) in Salvador de Bahia, I took a taxi that took me to the Maritime Terminal, located in the center of the city, right next to Mercado Modelo. The price of the taxi was R $ 15. You can also travel from the station to the pier by bus (costs R $ 3), but the truth is that at 6 in the morning I did not feel like finding what I had to catch and queue.

From the Maritime Terminal leave large catamarans that travel directly to Pier Morro de Sao Paulo. The trip, depending on the state of the sea, takes between 2 hours and 2 and a half hours and the price is between R $ 90 and R $ 100 per person and section. You can buy the ticket at the terminal box office. A third option can allow you if you do it on your own a small savings, but I doubt it worthwhile.

You can take a means of transport (taxi or public bus) that takes you to the Sao Joaquim Maritime Terminal. There, you will climb to any of the ferries that cross the Bay of All Saints to Good office. This journey takes about 40 minutes. From Good office, you have to take a bus to the town of Valenca. Once in the bus terminal of Valença, you should look for a transport (taxi) to the pier from where boats and small boats leave for Morro de São Paulo.

Although it sounds very lousy, there are companies that sell you the complete package especially on the reverse route, Morro-Salvador Airport and usually leave for the same price as the direct catamaran. I only recommend this third option to those who are not very friendly to the brave seas. The one-way trip was quite decent, but on the way back, I suffered from the bridge of a small boat with capacity for 25 people waves of more than two meters. It was a good adventure, even if it ended up very wet.

The accommodation prices vary greatly depending on their quality and location but keep in mind that Morro de São Paulo is a very touristy place and Brazil is not a cheap country so be prepared to pay a high price if you want something really Good. In Sao Paulo, you can do almost anything. For this reason, groups of tourists come here in a variety of ways: couples, groups of friends, families, party people, lovers of nature, etc.

The most active will have the opportunity to make beautiful trekking by beaches and forests can reach even to other towns on the island. You can also horseback riding, zip line, kayak and 4 × 4. If you just want to relax, you can sunbathe on any of the five beaches that are near the town of Morro. If you want to be quiet I advise the Fourth and Fifth beaches.
