Morro da Cruz, Itajai

4.4
#4 of 23 in Things to do in Itajai
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.

    High places, which allow broad view of the horizon are always beautiful. With the Morro da Cruz is no different. Beautiful and wide landscape of the city of Itajaí anytime of the day and night. Is to contemplate and find specific points, or marvel at the city lights. Great to be visited!

    Really this place has to be part of your visit for Itajaí, a very nice where you have the view of the whole town, despite the slope to get!!! Has a few parking spaces! ..... The downside: is that the cross itself, was burned by a "short" or vandalism! the location tbem I found abandoned!

    Good place to meet the city of Itajaí. Has a very beautiful view. A good tourist spot to take pictures and walk with the family. You don't have to buy snack or beverage establishments, but the ride is worth it.

Where to stay in Itajai

In the city center, the area to the west of the mouth of the river offers the greatest selection of places to stay. Find hotels both basic and upmarket, catering to diverse tastes and budgets. You'll find a larger set of accommodations heading south along the coast. The town of Balneario Camboriu houses a broader selection than Itajai itself, with chain hotels, rental apartments, family-owned pousadas (guesthouses), and budget-friendly hostels.
