Beach Nature / Park
Crystal clear waters and coral reefs make Ponta de Castelhanos a perfect diving and snorkeling spot. Swim with the capiaçava fish, so fearless they come right up to you. A floating raft serves freshly caught crab and shrimp, and on the beach, by the hammocks strung between the palm trees, locals serve a traditional shrimp stew with plantain made in clay pots.

  • Ideal for snorkeling. You have to go with a guide, but ask in the village, someone is going to take (walking)

  • Beautiful place, have a delicious pastel and also the thread of cocoa they prepared on time. The price of pastel varies between 10:15 real. Very good!!

  • Go with a guide, respecting the environment, has a larger marine diversity, so maybe be a little more limited access to moreré and more controlled. The Guide Morea was awesome and helped us get the pools without unbalancing the environment and make the most of the trip knowing the fauna and marine flora of the place.

Where to stay in Ilha de Boipeba

Almost the entirety of the accommodations on this happily undeveloped island are located in the main town in the north east. Pousadas (guesthouses) possessing a traditional, rustic charm represent the most common accommodation type in the town, with facilities as basic as you would wish from an island still retaining a certain idyllic sense of days gone by. A couple of budget options can be found in the village, with camping grounds one of the possibilities for budget-conscious travelers. A couple of other accommodations can be found in more remote areas, and will certainly need to be booked in advance.
