Other places of interest
Santa Catarina is a premier Brazilian tourist destination and the northern region of the state is rich in options for those who wish to enjoy the weekend after the event to relax. The options include:
- Beaches – Piçarras, Penha, Balneário Camboriú and Bombinhas, all in the north of Santa Catarina and easily reached travelling the BR-101 toll road, are famous for the beautiful beaches and lush nature. Further south, Florianópolis offers more than 40 beaches, sure to suit almost any preference, including some of Brazil’s best surf breaks.
- Typical Food – given its European colonization traditions, particularly from Germany, the region is rich in culinary options. Blumenau and Pomerode offer excellent options for typical German or international cuisine. Along the coast, the highlight is the traditional cuisine from the Azores, based on sea food.
