Beaches · Theme Parks · Historic Walking Areas
Beaches reign as top State of Santa Catarina tourist attractions, yet this small state in the south of Brazil offers more than just traditional sun-and-sand appeal. Over 550 km (340 mi) of coastline provide plenty of both secluded beach spots and well-developed resorts designed to attract a global audience of party-loving vacationers.

Many visitors begin their tour with Oktoberfest in Blumenau, home to large German and Italian communities and renowned for its award-winning microbreweries.
