Now that it has an elevator, no complains at all. You must pay attention to the driving directions, we almost got lost. Quite a view.

Green Valley

Absolutely amazing club, everything from the music, djs, lights, to setting is top notch. Would recommend to anyone. Camboriu is a place for the future, great city with everything you need yet far from on the backpacker scene. With Green Valley a 20 minute taxi away it's worth visiting alone!

I hadn't been to Camboriú in decades, and the new attraction is a great addition to the region, connecting Camboriú to another beach. Great views and not expensive. Seniors citizens with ID have discount.Thank you Zulleika, come back soon!! ;D

Estaleiro Beach

Reviewed By Gisele D - Balneario Camboriu, SC

Praia com dois acessos , pelo estacionamento indo de carro e pagando 20,00 para passar o dia ou então pela trilha mas não é um acesso muito fácil , mas todo esforço vale a pena, porque a praia é maravilhosa , água limpa e transparente , mar calmo e pra quem mergulha então é muito show . Tem umas árvores que dá apoio para a sombra , mas recomendo levar toda estrutura de praia ( cadeira, guarda sol ) lá tem um quiosque . É pequena a praia mas sua beleza é grande .

Meia-Praia Beach

Reviewed By Triburn - Dallas, Texas

Meia-Praia/Itapema serves well as base city to explore the Beaches in the region (5 - 30 min away by car), which are among the best in the south east region of Brazil. This beach is not stunning like most Beaches in the region, however, it offers good infrastructure of restaurants, pubs, banks, shopping, hospital, pharmacy, etc.. This beach is very enjoyable during the off season months of March, April and November when it's not crowded and the temperature is just perfect... The city has done a great job building a walk path and bike lane along the sea wall, which is about 4 miles/6km long, and has fresh water showers in every beach entry/exit point... The natural vegetation is also being restored along the sea wall and new trees planted for shade... Overall, a good small town.

Morro do Careca

Reviewed By sipleb - Joinville, SC

The Morro do Careca is a small hill that sits between Balneário Camboriú and Itajai. Entry is free.
First the good: The views up there are spectacular - looking north toward Praia Brava and looking south toward Canto da Praia. There is also a parasailing company that will let you do a few minutes of parasailing for a couple hundred reais. There is also a little snack bar with drinks, açaí and restrooms.
Now the bad: Parking is a big headache. There is a small parking lot right at the base of the hill that is flat and allows you to maneuver fairly easily. If you go on a busy day though, you will have to park on the steep and narrow road that leads up to the hill. Getting in and out of those spaces requires the handbrake, and can be challenging. There can also be traffic jams with cars trying to get up and down the hill because the road is too narrow to have cars moving in both directions where one side of the road is used for parking. Thankfully, there are some park service employees that help manage the situation. Give them a few coins on your way out if they help you.

Itapema Beach

Reviewed By Thomas H

This is the central and popular beach near central Itapema. The more well-known, and next door is Meia Praia. This "middle-becah" is in fact a part of Itapema, and is sunny days maybe too full. To be really close to BR101 and all kind of arrangements will Itapema be a good choice.

Morro da Aguada

Reviewed By dutch74 - Sandy Springs, Georgia

Balneario Camboriu is a city in the state of Santa Catarina in southern Brazil. While it is best known for its Beaches, the city has another special attraction. There are two cable car lines which link the main city to the nearby beach at Laranjeiras. You have to first ride from the city to the top of a mountain which contains an environmental park. Adjacent to the environmental park are a couple of fun activities. These include a zip ride where you ride in a chair at around 60 kilometers per hour. There is also a car that makes close turns in the forested area at around the same speed.
After your visit to the environmental area, you can take a second cable car down to the beach at Laranjeiras. It is a smaller beach than in Balneario Camboriu. However, it is more quiet and secluded. At the beach, you can eat food with one of the restaurants that offers shade with umbrellas. Food selections include appetizers, seafood and shrimp.
The price for the cable car is 36 reais per person while the zip ride (line) costs 39 reais. It is best to leave before the trains close to avoid long lines. It is a nice way to enjoy your visit to this beach area of Santa Catarina.

Certainly a must see in that part of the coast ... A fisherman boat will take you there for 10 reais per head (cheap alternative to the pirate boat). From the island you have a small movie style paradise beach and a fantastic forest.
Nice place for sure.
