A short boat crossing from Boipeba to neighbouring Tinharé island for a day at its finest beach at Garapuá on the southern end of this beautiful tropical island. 


how it works

Depart hotel or pousada on foot and walk to Boca da Barra beach, and board our boat and head for Garapuá Beach, easterly facing traditional fishing village on the southern end of neighbouring Tinharé Island. The beach here is stunning, harbouring wonderful natural pools of coral reefs teem with small tropical fish in crystalline warm waters, making for some of the best snorkelling in the region. The water here is calm for much of the year with gentle waves offering great swimming. The coconut tree fringed beach is home to a number of beach huts offering a wide variety of local seafood dishes.
