Discover Boipeba Brazil

You can stop looking: if it's paradise you're looking for, we've found it here! This remote island is not the easiest place in the world to get to and is much better preserved than the nearby Morro de Sao Paulo on Tinharé Island. The journey to Boipeba involves a 30 minute ferry trip from Salvador to the island of Itaparica, followed by an hour and a half drive to the town of Valence, and then a further hour-long boat ride that drops you off next to the sandy streets of the village of Boipeba. You then need to walk 20 minutes through the village to a tractor that will take you through the tropical forest to Moreré, 30 minutes away. The paradise setting is definitely worth the effort! As far as accommodation is concerned, we recommend the ocean-facing Pousada Colibri (hummingbird), which consists of 5 chalets tucked away in a tropical garden where hummingbirds nest, hence the name of the establishment. The Swiss owner, Jacques, prepares the best breakfast on the island and is also more than happy to act as your guide to this beautiful location, which he knows like the back of his hand!

    Not the easiest place in the world to get to (literally), this island is much better preserved than the nearby tourist hub of Morro de Sao Paulo on Tinharé Island.
