4.9
#3 of 11 in Things to do in Ilha de Boipeba
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.

  • A beach further away, so more deserted. I liked, but the visit was quick and I couldn't enjoy much in the day, the sky was gray too.

  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Pulsating nature, visual unforgettable! Stalls with good snacks and fresh seafood! You can spend the day enjoying the beach.

  • Wonderful site, warm waters, there is two ways to reach the place by boat or overland through the mangroves of bainema beach. Warning always use the help of a local guide, as the only access mangrove to who knows where you are and you know what you're doing. Look for the Association of guides of Boipeba. Will be a day trip around.

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.
