Morro de São Paulo - Bahia
Hi friends, I´m sorry about the lack of posts, but has been a busy month,and I have a feeling that it will get worse before it gets any better, but I´ll try to come here more often. Now let´s talk about what really matters. Today I´ll make an article about one of the most famous islands in Brazil.
Morro de São Paulo is a village in the Tinharé island, but due to the famous village, the island is more known as Morro de São Paulo.
With beautiful beaches, coral reefs and surf activity, this island is certainly a very good option for people that are spending some time in Salvador, it´s about 20 minutes away by plane, and 2 hours by boat.
This place is for people that want to relax and practice all kinds of water sports. If you´re into diving, there are dive operators in the islands. They offer boat trips to the best sites, you can choose free dives or use tanks, you can also rent all the equipment needed. The best time for diving is from octobert to february.
Yatchism and sailing are also very strong in the island, with full infra-structure for it.
What most people don´t know is that Morro de São Paulo is one of the best spots for surf in Bahia.
The best points are:
Pé de Moleque: On First Beach, the best waves on the island that come with a swell that reaches its greatest height from the East. Breaking from two to six feet over a coral reef.
Quebrancinha: On the left corner of First Beach. The waves break rapidly and sharply from the left, over a rocky, coral-littered bottom. Waves only break when the height over Pe de Moleque is greater than four feet. Wave heights reach between two and four feet.
Fourth Beach: There are various "secret points" on Fourth Beach that can only be surfed with an island local. Wave heights between two and four feet.
