After crossing Tassimirim, you will arrive to Cueira, the only beach where you will find some waves.
With the low-tide you can cross the Oritibe river and after a short walk you arrive to Morere, another beautiful beach with natural swimming pools, and many restaurants.
With a boat you can go until Ponta dos Castelhanos, one of the most deserted beaches of the island.
There are so many beaches to see around Boipeba - just take a walk to the south and you'll find loads of places to sit and relax.
If you head south out of Boipeba and walk....and walk somemore...and then walk somemore....cross a river and walk through the palm tree forest ... you'll find a wonderful beach that some think is the best one around. They all were the best if you ask me!

Just to the south of Boipeba, right on the beach, is a place to get lobster - almost right out of the sea. The price is much cheaper than in "town" and it tastes great! Great place for lunch....walk there from Boipeba.
Favorite Dish: The lobster, which is what they sell, is excellent. They likely sell crab too, but we had the lobster. Little guys that are cut up and boiled and cooked right there in front of you. Excellent stuff.
From Salvador, take the ferry to Itaparica (Bom Despacho) It cost R$ 3,65.
From Bom Despacho a bus to Valença (R$ 9.-) and from here a speed boat to Boipeba (R$ 35.-)
Ferry : 1 hour
Bus: 1:40 to 2 hs
Boat : 1 hour
If you are heading to Boipeba from Valenca -- it is well worth pooling your resources to hire a speed boat to get you there. If you aren't careful (like us) you'll end up on the fast boat to knowhere ... otherwise known as the "river bus" that'll take you up to four hours to get to your destination. The river bus will stop for anyone on the river banks ... whereas your speedboat zips on by.

A few days in Boipeba, Bahia, is really a nice getaway. A town that really has limited tourist infrastructure, Boipeba has great beaches and with wonderful warm, clear water. Excursions by boat will take you to "natural pools" created by the tide where you can see loads of fish....
