Araça Azúl


Araça Azúl is an eco-home perched high on a hill overlooking the forest canopy.

An acre of landscaped tropical garden surrounds the property. The ocean is just 70 m from the front door.

Flanked by the Inferno River estuary on one side, and the mighty Atlantic on the other, Boipeba island seems virtually uninhabited. There are no cars. Shoes are optional.

Part of Brazil’s Tinharé archipelago in Bahia, Boipeba measures just twelve kilometres in length by five wide and is only accessible by boat.

What we love about Araça Azúl

  • Nestled within a lush 1-acre tropical garden, the property offers an oasis of natural beauty and tranquility.
  • This two-level house features a generous-sized kitchen, dining room, an art-filled sitting room, and outdoor dining area, seamlessly combining indoor and outdoor living.
  • The second level comprises three air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, with an additional separate cottage on the property offering a unique retreat to accommodate extra guests.
  • The house was built using registered sustainable hardwood and recycled boatwood and runs off a solar hot water system with eco-friendly waste treatment and agroforestry principles implemented in the garden.
  • The staff at Casa Araçá Azul are hugely important. They are paid above minimum wage and are an integral part of the experience.
  • In 2021, Casas Tropicalia launched the social project Viva Morere, offering free courses and training to over 100 young people in the community of Morere, with support from the Irish Embassy in Brazil. Guests can learn more about and support this impactful initiative during their stay.

Venture beyond the property to discover the local community, with guided tours and shopping assistance available.

Mornings at Casa Araçá Azul are best started with a leisurely breakfast on the outdoor terrace, prepared by your housekeeper. Stroll to the pristine white shores just 100 metres away and while away the days sunbathing, swimming, or snorkeling amidst coral reefs.

Inside the house, immerse yourself in art and literature and cozy up with a good book in the evenings. The fully equipped kitchen and dining area also make the property ideal for shared meals and gatherings.

The staff can help arrange transportation should you so wish.


You can either take a ferry or an air taxi from Salvador International Airport to reach Casa Araçá Azul.

The air taxi lands on a particular landing strip on Tinharé Island. From here, it’s a short five-minute crossing to Velha, Boipeba. This is also where you’ll disembark the ferry. Casa Araçá Azul is a 15-minute taxi drive from the island’s centre.

Private transportation can be arranged on request.

When to Travel

The best time to visit Boipeba Island for pleasant weather is September to December. Avoid the rainy months from February to July if you want to make the most of the beach. Between Christmas and Carnival (early Feb) tends to be the busiest time.
