The Abaquar Hostel (“flying man” in Tupi-Guarani language) is located in a 3262 square meter area surrounded by a lot of green,with an extensive garden full of palm and fruit trees producing and presenting us with the fruits of each season.The hostel is located very close to the main square and the beautiful beach (Bocca da Barra) (3 minutes walk – on the island we do not use cars), but in a quiet area with lots of privacy where you can wake up every morning listening to the birds singing.

About Abaquar hostel

The hostel is managed independently (an association card for staying is not required) and comes up with an innovative concept. Here, enjoying life with comfort is a priority, not only by valuing the knowledge of the local culture, but also by preserving the environment and sustainable tourism. We always ask you to only bring back home pictures of the island, as well as a huge desire to come back and see again the dear friends who you left here!
Peter and Fernanda, the owners, a young Belgian - Brazilian couple are passionate about the values of nature and cultural diversities which they discovered after traveling around the world. They got to know different cultures and finally met each other in Thailand, where they joined their ideals and dreams. They chose the island of Boipeba as their paradise, not only to live in their own place but also to build a wonderful hostel, which is truly unique and located in the middle of nature!

Accommodation Information

The hostel has 5 bedrooms, 3 double rooms and 2 bedrooms with capacity for 6 people each, all very airy, with ensuite and balcony overlooking the garden.
The daily price includes bed and bath linen as well as a delicious breakfast served with great care on the balcony every morning.

Location Information

The word Boipeba originates in Tupi Guarani.
Boipeba is one of the oldest sites of colonization of Brazil, founded in 1537 by the Jesuits. The island is formed by the villages of Old Boipeba, San Sebastian, and Moreré, and is inserted in Tinharé Archipelago which is an environmentally protected area (APA), composed of thirty-six islands. The island has a rare natural beauty and different ecosystem-s as the Atlantic Forest, extensive mangrove forests and deserted beaches with white sand and blue sea. A true preserved paradise!
