One of the amazing places I've been in Brazil.

Even if you´re not a surfer, this is the beach to go to. Soft, white sand, a nice breeze and green-blue water. There is also the Bar do Zado, famous for their "pastel de siri", a crab-meat fried dumpling, or something to that effect.

So now I have been to Garopaba 3 times over 21 years. Good friends live just down the road in Imbituba. For Brazilians, this town is almost a pilgrimage. What they don't realize is that Brazilian beaches, when compared with say, Thailand or Caribbean, are just so-so. That makes Garopaba one of the better "so-so" beaches in southern Brazil. But...

This is a beautiful place God gave to humans who, as usual, are transforming into a hell. The primitive taste of the site is gone and little by little it is becoming as the other crowded beaches of Santa Catarina. Ugly constructions by the sea, bad and expensive restaurants and all kind of dirt over the shore vegetation that should... More
