“Superb beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Quatro IIhas is an fantastic beach with great surf and is one of half a dozen truly outstanding beaches in the state of Santa Catarina. Bombinhas is only a 15 min walk from QI and should be visited for the beaches, restaurants and boutique shops. Recommend to hire a car and explore the other beaches nearby such as Bombas, Mariscal and Zimbros - in one word "Amazing",

“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Very calm, a nice place to spend your time with family. Kids will enjoy. If you like to scuba dive, there are some companies in the area that can take you the open waters, although visibility in the are is not that good, sealife is abundant.

“Las Olas Restaurant, formerly known as Casa Do Camaroa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

We were traveling with Oceania cruise line from Buenos Aires to Rio, and were getting a little tired of some of the stops that seemed to be nothing but small beaches and tourist shops. That was what Porto Belo looked like to me. But I had read somewhere that I really needed to visit this town and beach about 25 minutes away and spend my time there. My husband and I were traveling with another couple so we paid the $30 ($15 apiece) less in reales, to go there, and boy was it worth it. The restaurant is called LAS OLAS in Quatro Ilhas and it overlooks the ocean. The meal for four people cost us less than $10 apiece and is their shrimp specialty. There are 3 courses with two shrimp appetizers prepared different ways, and then the main meal with shrimp, rice beans, and I can't remember what all else. Try the Korean ice cream for dessert. And the beach is to die for. Spend the rest of your day there. The couple who owns the restaurant is wonderful. They did not speak English, but their daughter happened to be their on spring break from college in Vancouver. She was delightful and spent time talking to us, telling us about her family and how her mom loves to cook for the people who visit her restaurant. The town itself, is definitely a more upscale town, where upper middle class Brazilians probably vacation. The cab driver agreed to come back and pick us up at a certain hour and we were glad we did that because the restarant is a little ways out from the town.
