Fodor's Review

The closest beach to Boipeba's small town, Velha Boipeba, is also the island's busiest, dotted with pousadas and beachfront restaurants serving Bahian seafood and ice-cold beer. Although the turquoise waters are calm enough for swimming, they get rougher when the tide comes in, swallowing most of the sand and making sunbathing a challenge. Where the sea joins with the Rio do Inferno is one of the island's best spots for watching the sunset. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: sunset; walking.
