We stayed here for 5 nights in February, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Charles was very helpful by email before arriving, with advice on the best way to arrive. We had the huge room above the restaurant with a large balcony. I was a little concerned when we arrived that the room wouldn't feel private and we would be bothered by... More

Ilha de Boipeba is indeed an adventure to get to-- several hours on ferry, taxi and speedboat from Salvador, but the remote location makes it a perfect get-away for those who like quiet beaches (great walks to more remote beaches than the one right at Boipeba), walking, reading, painting/drawing and excellent eating. Charles is knowledgeable about the few activities there... More

Nice pousada with a great restaurant, owned by Charles, a very nice person who knows a lot about things to do on the island. The pousada is located a 2-mins walk from the beach close to the village of Boipeba. The beach is not very clean and there is a considerable number of wild dogs around the beach. If you... More

They treat you like family - in a good way - right from the start. This is a charming little pousada set back from the beach. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. The dinners in the restaurant were superb --probably the best on the island. It's not for everyone. No air conditioning and no nightlife. But we loved our... More

Comfortable and welcoming on this wonderful little island. The only mistake we made was not arriving early enough in Salvador to take the ferry. Traveling five hours by car and boat at night was hair raising. It's a wonderful property that is a two minute walk from the beach. No ocean views if that's important to you. Very good food... More

I had the great pleasure of spending a week at Pousada Santa Clara on the beautiful island of Boipeba! The entire stay was everything I dreamed of and more. Beautiful, quiet, relaxing, rustic-chic, foodie paradise and if that was not enough, exceptional guest relations! From the moment you arrive, you feel loved by Charles and his team. They genuinely care... More

After 2 weeks in Brazil, with visits to the caves in PETAR, Sao Paulo State, and Iguacu falls, we came to Boipeba on the promise from reviewers of a paradise like no other. They were not wrong, but it is more than that, it really is the promised land. At its heart is the Santa Clara. This is the most... More

We spent four days on this idyllic island and this was made possible by Charles at Santa Clara. We did not know what to expect as we travelled by catamaran to San Paulo de Morro. Arriving in Boipeba by boat to be greeted by a sea of people in the water and on land. The accommodation was everything in we... More

This is truly a wonderful place to stay for your much needed holiday. Everything is so considered, clean & perfect - from the location to the rooms, from the breakfast to the evening meal, from the guests to the amazing hosts. Thank you so much for my paradise holiday, I will definitely return. Xx

After finding Santa Clara and Boipeba 5 years ago through a Sunday Times article, I feel it is time to write a review. We have come each year for 2 weeks in December every year since. We have never returned anywhere else on holiday so this in itself is a testament to Santa Clara. What we love about the place... More
