Boipeba island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Boipeba is an island on the Atlantic coast of Brazil. In fact, this is not a true island, since it is separated from the mainland by river only. However, the beaches are great. In fact, this is major destination of a budget ecotourism, - due to its affordable location. As for the the downsides, it is worth to mention the problem of strong low tides, when ocean bottom is exposed. However, this is not a real problem. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #4 of the "Best islands in South America"

Hotels [edit]

Boipeba is mostly a budget destination. Rooms' rates in guesthouses start from as low as US$20 per night. However, there are also few upscale villas up to US$300 per night, or sometimes even more expensive.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Salvador da Bahia international airport (SSA). Then you have three options to get to Morro de Sao Paulo:

- plane (20 min per way, US$90 for the return);

- boat/ferry (2 hours per way over the choppy ocean, US$25 for the return);

- public transportation by the mainland (4 hours per way, US$10 for the return, - ferry from Terminal Maritimo São Joaquim to Itaparica, next take a bus to Valença and then get by ferry to Morro de São Paulo).

Once you are in Morro de Sao Paulo, then it's left just to pass another 20 km to the south :) You may walk, or get by boat, or choose public transportation by the ground. In any case, it won't be expensive. Ask locals for options that are available at the moment, and you will understand what is the best for you.

When to go [edit]

Boipeba island is good for a holiday any time of year - except for the short rainy season in May.
