Much of these hotels are located on the beaches of Morro de Sao Paulo, but we find accommodations in the village and the smaller streets around the village as well. You just have to know which beach you want to stay and what’s your intent of your vacation, for example, the Fourth and Fifth Beach are suitable for those seeking relaxation, comfort and privacy of semi deserted beaches.
