Ilha de Boipeba is a small island across the narrow Rio do Inferno off the coast of the bustling town of Salvador. This beautiful natural island, located in the Tinharé archipelago in the southern part of Bahia state is one of Brazil’s hidden gems. Compared to its more popular counterpart, Morro de Sao Paulo, this island is truly one of the region’s best-kept secrets.
Boipeba is home to a variety of eco-systems so don’t be surprised to see mangroves, sand dunes, an Atlantic forest, and even Salt Marches. Beach lovers can enjoy the islands desolate pristine coastline with more than 20km of beautiful, deserted beaches, including Ponta de Castelhanos, known for its diving.
The island is also extremely ecologically diverse owing largely to its geographic setting, located beside an estuary, from which the river drains into the ocean creating an interesting array of terrain and birds. Days in Boipeba can be spent relaxing on the numerous beaches, wandering the local villages, or enjoying the fabulous natural treasures the island has to offer.
