    I'm very fond of nature and I like quiet, so I chose bathhouses of Hermenegildo like my heaven.

    The small and friendly Beach of Hermenegildo is located approximately 15 kilometers from the city of Santa Vitória do Palmar and offers a small infrastructure, with hostels, hotels, kiosks, lancherias and restaurants. It is a very quiet and tranquil beach and that is highly sought after by vacationers in the southern part of the State and by Argentines and Uruguayans, mainly those who are adherents of the practice of surfing, Bodyboarding, Standup Paddle and fishing. Lately the residents has been facing serious problems because with strong Undertow, the sea has invaded the dunes and urban areas and has been undermining the safety of houses close to the edge. Hermenegildo became known worldwide when in April 1978, thousands of marine animals started showing up dead on the coast and its waters have acquired a reddish tone and exalavam a strong odor that has plagued the region. Emerged various hypotheses to explain the causes of death, one of them was that they would have poured chemicals on the ship sunken in Taquari, 1971, near the Uruguayan coast Polonium cable, but later a report of the Health Ministry pointed out that the cause of the disaster has been a natural phenomenon known as red tide and that is caused by toxins released after the proliferation of marine algae. At the time the report has received a lot of criticism from environmentalists, but the discussion on the subject was instrumental in strengthening the ecological movement Gaucho who had just been born.
