As the title suggests, this is the only beach where things happen. Most of the resraurants, bars, shops and mini-makets are here. Some restaurants offer live music. Prices are fair (around $20,00 for a dish for 2), waiters are helpful and the food is quiet good. Swimming is pretty safe. The water is warm and calm, specially during low tide.

If you've never been on an island, you're losing a nice feeling. Morro de São Paulo is amazing. You'll find many restaurants and a warm water at the second beach.

Crowded beach in day and night. If you are looking for peace and restful weekend dont choose it. But if not, this is the right place. You can surf, standup paddling, rest and have a good food on it.

This is the place where all day and night life concentrates. During the day you can rent a sunbed and order drinks or dinner from one of the local restaurants. I recommend Baiano which has best location and the decent beach service. At night this is where people come for late dinner, beach party or just stroll around.

During daytime this beach is crowded with tourists and locals who want to sell some food. Not really a beach were you can take a nap. In the evening / night there was a party were tourists and locals gathered. This was a nice party which I definitely recommend!

Nice for those who likes live music, seat, drink and eat talking to friends. Many bars, restaurants, beautiful people. But too oops full and crowded. A bit dirty and the waves to strong, not good for swimming.

In this place you have many options of restaurants and music. There are also a lot of ambulant sellers where you can buy drinks, and also rent chairs if you do not want to stay in a restaurant !

The second beach of Morro de São Paulo is the most visited one. Because of that, there are many restaurants, bars and facilities by the beach.

2nd Beach is more a place to see and to be seen and to party, than a nice beach. Empty he would sure be a nice one, but that might be seldom to be found on Morro.

Whether you like this beach or not depends on what you are looking for. If you like crowded, noisy beaches encroached upon every step of the way by tourists, restaurants, bars and shops, you will love "Beach 2". If not, go to any other beach on the island.
