Boipeba is Bahia's most wonderful and off the beaten track island with no cars or traffic, just miles of unspoilt beaches and unique and beautiful places to stay, like the Pousada Santa Clara, Pousada Mangabeiras to name a few. Choosing where to eat well, is simply a case of discovering the hidden gems that come with their own unique offerings and ambiance. Here are the ones worth checking out on your travels:
Fresh, delicious lunch or dinner - reservations only
Sambura restaurant in the village of Morerê, also home to Pousada A Mangueira. This cosy home restaurant looking out into the ocean is run by husband and wife Guiliano and Estela, big fans of Hidden Pousadas Brazil. They serve lovingly prepared freshly-made native dishes and frutos do mar (seafood) are always a speciality.We were invited by chef Guiliano, to experience some of his favourite dishes. Getting there from the main village of Velho Boipeba entails an hour and a half's treck through lush forest and along wonderfullyunspoilt sandy beaches, all the time looking out over palm trees and turquoise blue sea.
