I've been 2 times at Morro and I really love this place. Unfortunately they've been suffered with deployment tourism . Some places have had trashs and few tourists. But that still... read more

If you liek walking along the beach this is for you. You pass all the turbulance of the first beach and pass the quieter second beach. On the third beach then there are hardly any people. It's beautiful and quiet.

You may rent kayaks on the shore and take them for a paddle to the tiny rock island. Great for snorkelling as well

Beach is great to embark on the boats that take you around the island. Not the greatest for beach bums since at high tide the sand is gone up to the board walk. Some great pousadas (Corais) in this stretch but prefer quarta praia for sincere tranquility and joy of beach life.

On low tides that's practically what you see. It's the departure point for the boat trips going around the islands. Nice deck with some restaurants and shops.

Away from the beach bars and noise of 2nd beach, this is a place to listen to the ocean and relax in the shade. The water is warm. Paradise.

In my opinion the best beach in Morro de São Paulo. Not full like the 2nd beach, not empty like the 4th and 5th and the nicest view. Perfect for snorkeling and swimming.

Beach 3 is a short stretch of sand in an "unswimmable" rocky area in what I would call the in-between beach between the mayhem of Beach 2 and the tranquility of Beach 4. Nice to walk along, but I would recommend Beach 2 or Beach 4 (or Gamboa) depending on what type of atmosphere you like.

Terceire Praia is the working beach of Morro, i.e. where the fishermen are based. The beach is smallish and a bit dirty at low tide and there is no beach at all at high tide, but the beach promenade is full of nice restaurants and pousadas.
