Itapema

(2,400+ reviews from 8 attractions)
Beaches Sightseeing
One of Santa Catarina's most popular tourist destinations, Itapema hugs the shore in an attractive sandy bay, framed by rocky outcrops and hills. A resort town first and foremost, the main attractions in Itapema are linked to the seaside economy, with its long sandy beaches heavily developed with bars, restaurants, and gift shops. The hillier parts of the coast offer good views back along the bay on a range of walking routes, though there's little chance of feeling as though you're out in the wilderness, as there's always someone there to offer you an ice cream. To arrange what you want to do in Itapema, use our Brazil vacation route planner.
