"Mountains and Coast Line" Estado de Santa Catarina by glabah

Estado de Santa Catarina Travel Guide: 288 reviews and 705 photos

I have been told that Santa Catarina is the most beautiful state in Brazil. I can't verify that as I have only been to a few other states in Brazil. However, I can attest that Santa Catarina should be thoroughly explored, especially outside its most famous locations.

In some areas, the coast line is very beautiful and has large beaches, and there is even a significant surfing industry going in such places as Florianopolis. However, not all of the coast line is that way. By the time you get to Imbituba going south, there are some fairly significant rocks just off the coast.

The northern part of the state has a steep coastal forest area where the inland highlands sescend to the ocean. However, further south the coastal strip of land actually becomes a fairly significant coastal plain, and a fair amount of farming activity is supported in this area.

As you head inland, the state has even more mountainous forests, and quite a number of very attractive locations well outside those around Florianopolis that are so famous.
