Morro da Cruz, Itajai
(4.6/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Although poorly attended and not give due emphasis to the vista you have, the view you get is awesome, has a small deck that although little blocked, provides the view of a beautiful sunset.
