Site description Boa Nova está situada no extremo nordeste do Planalto da Conquista, ao sul do rio de Contas, em uma região de relevo bastante irregular. A vegetação é extremamente variada. A leste/sudeste da cidade, resquícios do que outrora foi uma extensa floresta atlântica montana reco brem a vertente oriental (voltada para o mar) de um contraforte do planalto conhecido como Serra da Ouricana. Alguns poucos quilômetros a oeste, na retaguarda dessa vertente, a floresta úmida dá lugar à caatinga e matas mais secas, incluindo a mata-de-cipó, uma formação vegetal rica em lianas e bromélias terrícolas de grande porte, do gênero Aechmea.
