Ilha de Boipeba
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...
Enjoy the sun and the sand.
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.
Walk -- where? Another beach, of course.
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!
Natural tide pools
You can hop on a boat in Boipeba and go north and south to more beaches where there are natural tidal pools. In these pools are loads of colourful fish to snokel about with.
Quinta do Cajù: pousada/hotel
A remote and beautiful island, the place to go if you are looking to get away from it all, with unspoilt beaches and a relaxed ambiance. The beaches are gorgeous - sandy and gently shelving, with warm water and lined with coconut trees! We spent a day walking along the...
Casa de Irene: Beautiful House
Beautiful house with three rooms to rent. The owner, Irene is a very nice french-brazilian woman that found in Boipeba her place and want to share with their guests her happiness, making you feeling like in your own home.
This is probably the most comfortable pousada in Boipeba -- but it's not actually IN Boipeba! There is a little boat you must take (owned by the pousada) to and from the town. Any time you want to go they will take you, and to get back you just have one of the bars on the...
Pousada Maliale: Where to stay....
If you heading to Boipeba, consider Pousada Maliale as your accomodation. The pousada is actually a 2 minute speedboat ride from the village and the main beach but this is really not a problem. The accomodations are great for where you are in Brazil. Large rooms, restaurant...
Lobster -- on the beach
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.

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....
