Having visited Balneário Camboriú many times over the last 15 years we have enjoyed many a happy holiday here.
The town benefits from a very long and sandy beach with calm waters and a wealth of bars and restaurants along its length on Av. Atlantica with shops and other amenities a short walk away on Av. Brasil which runs parallel to the beach.
The beach can become very busy over the summer months especially during the weekends and around carnival. The southern end of the beach is generally quieter than the central area in front of Ilha das Cabras.
At the southern end of the beach you can take the cable car up to Parque Unipraias Camboriu whilst at the northern end of the beach there are walkways leading to the lovely beaches Prainha and Praia do Buraco. Next to the entrance to the cable car is a great children’s playground and a stone walkway which takes you out into the bay.

This city is built around the beach. It is a nice sandbeach and there are skyscrapers all along it. Right on the beach and next to it there are many shopping malls, restaurants etc. It is quite developed and safe place.

Very busy in peak times, this is a great option for those seeking Rio-style entertainment and views, without the surrounding favelas and probably about half the cost of Rio. Very nice and differing attractions at each end of the beach, well worth making the effort to see it all. A long promenade with a one-way Avenue Atlantica (Atlantic Avenue). Plenty of rental apartments, cafes, restaurants, stalls, bars. A great time to visit from England because of the phenomenal exchange rate. Beer and food is varied and very cheap, especially if you dive down one of the many side roads. Sit back with a beer or two and watch the sports cars, Harley Davidsons, cyclists, runners cruise by all day\night. Fairly safe if you are sensible with your gear, plenty of Guarda on show. A shopping Avenue runs parallel to Atlantica with all the outlets you could wish for. Stunning beach with lovely warm waves lapping around your feet and ankles.

This has the WOW factor. A 7k beach that looks spectacular in front of a mix of established buildings to state of the art high rise apartments .Shop, eat or drink just yards from one of the most impressive beach fronts i have ever seen. (not seen during the height of the season, but can guess it gets packed), but will still look great,

I have seen quite a number of beaches worldwide but few were as disgusting as this one. There are about one million people at this town during summer, the beach is their central waste site and the sea is their sewage treatment. Right next to the dark-sanded beach you have a waterfront road with a 24h-traffic jam along the wall of cheap ugly highrise buildings. In few countries you find such an urge to destroy the beauty of nature as in Brazil. Balneario Camboriu is a good example.
Locals however seem very happy with the result! Whatever floats your boat...

The Central Beach is a good place to look the beach, take some drink and sit down on the places available. The only problem is the shadow (from the builds) after 4p.m. I like this place.

Great beach, really clean and nice environment.
Sand is nice and the sea was warm and really shallow for far.
Lifeguards were there too.
There is so many places to eat and plenty of stations to get chairs and parasols with tables.
Salesmen coming around to sell things to make your day even more relaxing.
At night the beach is emptied and lots of sports are played

Nice beach in a modern resort. Clean water, safe place, nice sand. One of the best beaches in southern Brazil. Infrastructure for tourists in the town.
