Morro da Cruz, Itajai

4.5
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.

  • The Morro da Cruz is 180 meters high and take this name since 1980, when a cross was installed in your top. Access is all paved and upon arrival you can enjoy a beautiful view of Itajaí and the nearby town. Nice place, quiet and family.

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.
