Buy Your Dream Island Home In Boipeba


Boipeba, Cairú - Brasil, BahiaBuy Your Dream Island Home In Boipeba

Owning an island may be a far-fetched dream, but you can come close to it if you have a home in Boipeba. Boipeba is located in the county of Cairu and is one of the islands of the Tinhare archipelago on the southern coast of Bahia. It is separated from the mainland by a backwater lake. Boipeba is a beautiful island with a rich ecosystem untouched by urbanization and development. If you want a peaceful holiday home on a beautiful tropical island, Boipeba is the place to look for it.

Boipeba - Highlights

At Boipeba, you have everything that tropical dream islands are made up of. The island has dense tropical rainforests, palm lined beaches, coral reefs, salt marshes, sand dunes, mangroves and a variety of flora and fauna.

The wide reefs are dotted with shallow pools and crisscrossed by canals. Sea turtles nest on the beaches and the reefs are home to rich marine life, which includes many types of coral, colorful fish, star fish, mollusks and sea urchins. The forests are home to a variety of birds, foxes, reptiles, armadillos and insects.

It's only natural that a place so rich in vegetation and wild life is protected and preserved. You can access these islands only by boats and no vehicles except tractors are allowed. Boats are the popular form of transport for people going from one village to another. Underground cables supply electricity to all parts of the island.

The island has four villages: Velha Boipeba, Morere, Monte Alegre and Sao Sebastiao. Velha Boipeba is the most prominent island on the village and is home to about 2000 people. The traditional occupation is fishing and agriculture, but over the last decade tourism has gained a foothold. In Morere, another popular village for tourists, you will find pousadas, bars and restaurants. Sao Sebastiao is on the southern coast of the island.

Real Estate In Boipeba

Boipeba is the ideal place to buy your dream island home untouched by modern development and surrounded by nature. Real estate in Boipeba consists of large tracts of land, traditional houses on large plots and small hotels catering to tourists. Land is available from about R$150,000 onwards. You will get houses from R$240,000 and hotels from R$3,500,000. Let's take a closer look at the options.

Affordable Land In Boipeba (Prices up to R$1,000,000)

With a budget of between R$150,000 to R$1,000,000, you can get 400 to 4000 sq. meters of land in some great locations in Boipeba. You can find land near the highest point of the island offering great panoramic views of the sea and the beaches. Land is also available near the arrival pier, inside the village or next to the tourist-intensive beach of Mero. You can also look for locations close to the Boca da Barra beach where the backwater meets the sea.

Due to the limited transportation facilities, it makes sense to look for land near the main streets through which the tractors pass. Locations near the sea are also good because you will get boats to easily go to other parts of the island. Most of the lots have electricity and running water. Some have perennial sources of fresh water. Expect land to be covered with lush green vegetation and native fruit trees like cashew, mango and coconut palms.
