four islands

Much sought after by those who enjoy surfing, Quatro Ilhas Beach is considered one of the most paradisiacal on the coast of Brazil. From the shore it is possible to notice the geological constructions that gave the beach its name: the four islands of the city of firecrackers (Macuco Island, Galés Island, Deserta Island and Arvoredo Island). The white sand of the beach is adorned with small quartz crystals, making the scenery even more exuberant. The beach still carries a large concrete cross stuck in its sands and offers tourists the possibility of taking ecological trails on a hill with preserved vegetation, which is nearby. The gastronomy solves the problem of those who are hungry in the middle of the day, with the beach having some restaurants close to the shore.

Sepultura Beach

As a refuge from the busiest beaches in firecrackers, especially in the height of summer, Praia da Sepultura is small and almost deserted. The softness of the sea at this point is such that it resembles a swimming pool. Much sought after by families with small children, by those who do not like crowded beaches and even by those who enjoy diving or practicing stand up paddle, Sepultura is a good option. The curious name comes from a legend from 1840, in which a slave would have died in a fight and his body was buried there.

Diving in Arvoredo Island

Among the numerous points recommended for the practice of diving in Bombinhas, perhaps the most worth your attention is Ilha do Arvoredo. It is part of a Marine Biological Reserve and access to the island is monitored by Ibama, to avoid degradation of the environment in the place. If you dare to discover this little gem on the coast of Santa Catarina, you won't regret it. But, be aware, only 20 people can go to the island per day, so you need to plan ahead. The visibility on the island, for diving, easily reaches 25 meters, due to its unparalleled transparency. Among the rich marine flora and fauna, tourists will be able to observe squid, fish, moray eels, crustaceans, groupers and other infinity of animals.

Monkey Hill and 360° Eco Lookout

As a great alternative for those who are tired of the beach, Morro do Macaco combines several activities in one.

On the trail, it is possible to have contact with the well-preserved forest and even see the Arvoredo Marine Biological Reserve. As the visitor goes up, the view of the coast, the sea and the islands becomes more and more beautiful. In the same region it is possible to take a trail that leads to the Mirante Eco 360° and enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the Bombinhas beaches and neighboring cities.
