  • Without being so international the nearby Balneario Camboriu, is possibly the favorite of his own State. Divided neatly into two parts: to the North is the most traditional, with the public bodies and characteristics of a small town and the South the region more dynamic, modern commercial and Meia Praia beach. The set is lovely. Is progressing much, with all the good and bad that progress includes.

  • The beach of Itapema is beautiful and draws attention by the beautiful sea with greenish-colored waters and which are calm and quiet, the location provides an excellent tourist infrastructure with many choices of hotels, inns, kiosks, bars, restaurants, shopping, markets, banks and travel agencies, in addition to offering great options for those who like to enjoy the bustle of nightlife. Outside the high season Itapema turns into a very quiet and great place to live, but on holidays and holiday period the city changes and local demand by tourists and visitors is huge, causing big problems in traffic, in the service of the restaurants and in the supply of basic products. Itapema beach is a wonderful place, a true natural paradise, with lush landscapes, but as nothing can be perfect, unfortunately the uncontrolled urbanization, the huge amount of buildings and constructions that has been carried out in the city, without any concern and ecological control, care for the environment in basic sanitation, including wastewater issue straight on the beach is destroying the place by the intense pollution and even have existed at various points in the edge boards indicating that the location is already unfit for bathing.
