Morro da Cruz, Itajai
(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Although not the highest point on the island of Santa Catarina, at 285 m (935 ft), Morro da Cruz (Hill of the Cross) is the most accessible and it provides an almost complete panorama of the entire island. Looking out from the platform by the cross for which the hill is named, you can see the two bays, the bridges Hercílio Luz, Colombo Salles, and Pedro Ivo Campos, the neighborhood Trindade, part of the east coast of Florianópolis, and, of course, the vast Atlantic Ocean, surrounding the island. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Morro da Cruz by using our Itajai travel itinerary maker.

  • Coming through Br 101, South entrance of Itajaí, found no signpost from location (point of reference is to the right in the Valesul, then there is a sign). Viewpoint with no tourist structure (signpost, guides, bathrooms, food, shopping). It was worth the walk by sight of the place, I went very early, almost no one in the place, quiet to contemplate the view.
