Morro da Cruz, Itajai

(4.6/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Very good place to spend the new year in addition to the party at the Castle-shaped restaurant you have a beautiful view of the city and you can see the fireworks of Navigators and even of locker room. But if you drink watch your descent full of curves.

  • The climb to the Hill of the cross is worth, you have a complete view of the port of Itajaí and Navegantes, the entrance to the bar, the beaches of Mariners and a watchtower and a beautiful view of Mariners and Itajaí.
