“Great at night”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

There is a lot os restaurants and it is great to walk there even at night, but if you want to relax, this is not the place, because there is a lot of people and car traffic.

“Best city beach”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

This has the WOW factor. A 7k beach that looks spectacular in front of a mix of established buildings to state of the art high rise apartments .Shop, eat or drink just yards from one of the most impressive beach fronts i have ever seen. (not seen during the height of the season, but can guess it gets packed), but will still look great,

“Can it get any worse??”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

I have seen quite a number of beaches worldwide but few were as disgusting as this one. There are about one million people at this town during summer, the beach is their central waste site and the sea is their sewage treatment. Right next to the dark-sanded beach you have a waterfront road with a 24h-traffic jam along the wall of cheap ugly highrise buildings. In few countries you find such an urge to destroy the beauty of nature as in Brazil. Balneario Camboriu is a good example.
Locals however seem very happy with the result! Whatever floats your boat...

“Urban beach”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

It's the heart of the city and it clearly converges to that beach. But unlike the urban beaches in the rest os Brasil, the south - Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul - takes much better care, keeping them clean.
