Highly recommend walk up to the Morro it self, you’ll get to see island from both sides. Good to watch sun go down and to some climbing with kids.

It's a short but steep walk through the very humid and hot forest up to the lighthouse. It's worth it but make sure to drink lots of water. The view is wonderful and if you dare you can descend tirolesa way to first beach!

This agency changed my boat trip to a "semi boat" trip alleging boat maintenance but gives no compensation for that. It seems to be a scam. Avoid their services

This lighthouse is on top of the tallest hill, on your way to the viewpoint so you can visit itat the same time as it's really nothing special.

Top tourist attraction in Morro de Sao Paulo. Climb the stairs takes you around 30 minuts in slow pace, so start in good time before sunset so you arrive at the peak before the amazing sunset takes place. Unbelieavable views!!

Even though we stayed at an inn only steps from the lighthouse, we were not allowed to visit it as it is closed off season. Nevertheless, we did admire it every evening as it illuminated the area and truly believe that, without its majestic presence...More

You have to walk up many stairs to get to the top but it's worth it. Com ehere in teh evening to watch the sunset as many people come here to start the exciting trip by the Tiroleza down to the beach.

The view from the top of the hill is absolutely awesome .. however the place needs more structure caring ... climb at your own risk and make sure you are balanced up there!
