We took a regular service boat from the Morro pier for 4 reais each way, each person. The beach is not comparable to the Fourth and Fifth beaches on the opposite side of the island in terms of natural beauties (personal opinion, of course), but...More

This is the beach that you see when you arrive by boat or catamaran to Morro de Sao Paulo Island. This side of the island is more tranquil than the party intensive second and third beach of Morro de Sao Pauo

This beach is located on the opposite side on the island, and is only accessible by foot in the morning, before the tide gets too high.

The village of Gambia is very small..and within a hour walk from Moro de sao Paulo. Water taxi's running between site's every halt an hour. Beaches are quiet with some local bars and restaurants. Some water activities : kayaking , SAP, boat touring.

Walk right from the harbour along the beach. Check in your hotel when the tide is low. Get you body covered with the clay and take some brilliant shots and videos. From Gamboa take the boat back.
