Morro de Sao Paolo is a spectacular island off the coast of Salvador. It does not get more laid back than this. Clear waters, beautiful beaches, palm trees, cocktails off muddled tropical fruits. A wonderful experience. At night there is a great scene for dancing and having fun!

It's a long boat ride away from Salvador to paradise, but it's worth it. Morro de Sao Paulo is fairly remote but just established enough to have all the necessities. It's inexpensive to have a lobster dinner there or you can eat Açaí served as an ice cream all day all the time. Just be sure to not learn the hard way that Açaí is a digestive. And, explore the beaches each more remote than the one just conquered.
From Salvador it's worth the journey, so bring a bathing suit and prepare to wake up late.

Morro was a great escape from the underwhelming town of Salvador, Brasil. Morro is a car free island. You are met at the ferry dock by a throng of locals who will lug your luggage to your hotel. Hotels are all located within 2-15 minute walk of the docks. The island is small and hilly. There are no paved roads, just dirt paths. It is a big international playground getaway. Plenty or decent restaurants and nice beaches.
Take a walk around the shoreline to the mud cliffs where you coat yourself in the mud/clay from the crumbling cliffs for a fun free spa treatment.
We stayed at Pousada Colibri, which is run/owned by a cool german couple who moved to the island at least 20 years ago. Colibri is all the way at the top of the hill and takes a little extra effort to reach but it totally worth it. I wished we could have stayed there for a week. It was the highlight of our trip to Brazil.

Best island to relax. Great food and nice Posadas (Hotels). There are beach parties on Tuesday and Thursday surrounded with shake makers. Beach no is very cool - relax on sea beds and eat Asai salat de fruitas. Next day go to beach no. 4 where you will have long and private beach with warm blue water - amazing. Worth spending a week in order to feel the environment
