Balneario Camboriu - Santa Catarina

Balneario Camboriu was founded in 1964, when it was emancipated from the city of Camboriu. And since it´s foundation this has always been a place dedicated to tourism, it´s main financial activity. The city has around 95000 citizens and an infra-structure that can receive around 1.000.000 visitants, there are 100 hotels, 15000 houses and flats to rent for the summer, and plus that you can always find some "Pousadas", resorts and campings near the beaches.

Balneario Camboriu is a great option for people that want to spend some days or weeks in a place with nice beaches, friendly people and a lot of things to do and see. It has beaches for all kinds of tastes, from almost untouched to very crowded and full of beautiful people. There you will find Brazil´s first nudist beach, called Praia do Pinho.

Well, if you didn´t believe me when I said that it was full of beautiful people, check this video out. By the way, if you don´t want to see a lot of girls in bikinis then do not watch it hehe.

Told you, in this beaches you even see from time to time, a lot of brazilians top models like Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Gisele Bundchen, and others brazilians celebrities.

If you like sports, you´ll wont be disapointed. In the main beach you find special areas to play soccer, voleyball, futevolei(a variation of voleyball that is played with feet), do exercises... Plus that there are other areas where you can ride jetskis(you can rent one there). Surf is also a good option, as the state of Santa Catarina is one of the most famous surf spots in Brazil. And there are more options but they are too much to list here.

The nightlife is very intense, with a great number of dance clubs and "bares"(kind like pubs, but with a more brazilian feeling). The most famous dance club is called Baturite, and a lot of other bares are located around it. If you are not a big fan of dancing, you can just sit in a bar and relax eating something and drinking, it´s a great to way to meet people.
This is it, see ya later.

Hello Rodrigo. I'm the associate editor at ISLANDS magazine, and each year we do a feature on the best islands to live on (for U.S. citizens). We're looking into Brazilian islands and I want to hear your recommendations. These would need to be authentic/exotic, with basic amenities and a bit of an expat community. Please email me as soon as you are able to Thanks much, Kelly Lack
