Balneario Camboriu

— 3 nights
A resort town located just 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the city of Itajai, Balneario Camboriu is sometimes called the Brazilian Dubai--a reference to its dominant skyscrapers, sandy coastline, and jet-set appeal.
Change things up with these side-trips from Balneario Camboriu: Vila Germanica Park (in Blumenau), Bombinhas Beach (in Bombinhas) and Beto Carrero World (in Penha). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Praia das Laranjeiras, take in the awesome beauty at Morro do Careca, and pause for some photo ops at Cristo Luz.

Beaches · Theme Parks · Landmarks
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. Away from the busy coastal areas, a State of Santa Catarina vacation allows visitors to discover the country's European heritage, rich arts scene, outstanding cuisine, and renowned architecture. Many visitors begin their tour with Oktoberfest in Blumenau, home to large German and Italian communities and renowned for its award-winning microbreweries.
