The island of Boipeba is located in the municipality of Cairu, off the coast of the state of Bahia, close to the island of Tinharé, where Morro de São Paulo is located. Together they make up the Cairu Archipelago.
Boipeba’s name originated from the word tupy – m’boi pewa – which means flat snake to translate to the letter shovel, but it means “sea turtle”.
