Balneário Camboriú

Located a little more than 80 km from Florianópolis, Balneário Camboriú competes with the capital of Santa Catarina as the top spot for tourists in the high season. From December to March, approximately 1.5 million people visit the town. The bustling Praia Central, where the cosmopolitan Avenida Atlântica is located, is the heart of the city, but there are more peaceful and laidback options such as the Laranjeiras, Taquaras, Estaleiro and Estaleirinho beaches, and Praia do Pinho, the first naturist beach in Brazil. Parque Unipraias, located in Barra Sul, brings together leisure, shopping, ecotourism and also provides a great view of the city from its cable cars. The Rodovia Interpraias is also an obligatory trip, with beautiful landscapes along the whole route.
