Garopaba

(3,800+ reviews from top 20 attractions)
Beaches Nature Historic Sites
Once a sleepy fishing village, Garopaba has managed to retain much of its low-key charm despite the thousands of visitors who flock to its shores. Framed by low green hills, bluffs, and rock formations, the city winds along the coastline, giving excellent access to some of the region's finest beaches. Vacations in Garopaba usually involve some combination of surfing, windsurfing, and simply kicking back on the sand; after dark, Praia da Ferrugem becomes the epicenter of the city's surprisingly energetic nightlife. Ecotourism in Garopaba has taken off in recent years, thanks to the hiking opportunities in the surrounding hills. Note that city ordinances require buildings to limit themselves to two stories, preserving the town's rustic feel.
