Camboriú

The Sea at the Foot of Skyscrapers

Located in the state of Santa Catarina in Brazil, Camboriú is one of the ports called on by MSC Cruises, a place so loved that its population during the peak season, increases tenfold.
The city is characterized by a long stretch of sand that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the skyline of the skyscrapers, testimony to the economic development that this seaside town has had in recent years.
Camboriú Bay is a treat for the eyes: the thick, lush, green vegetation gives way to the turquoise of the sea, placid and inviting, and also boasts a sunny, humid climate.

In this place of relaxation and fun, the evening comes alive with tourists who enjoy the many clubs that overlook the ocean. Fish dishes, sweet cocktails made with fruit and hard liquor are a must on the coast of Brazil.

On an MSC Cruises excursion , you can visit Barra Sul ‒ a walk along the sea to enjoy the view, take beautiful photos to share with friends and walk on the sand ‒ and the beach in front of Ilha das Cabras, the destination for those who love spending time getting warmed by the sun and bathing in the inviting water. From there, you can take a walk on Avenida Atlântica where there are thousands of the colorful, cheerful locals that populate Camboriú. And the city center is another discovery: losing yourself in the streets and craft shops on the search for objects to take home and give away is all part of the fun.

One of the other MSC Cruises excursions, instead, is dedicated to Ilha das Cabras : you arrive on a pirate schooner to this place of privileged, strategic observation to enjoy Camboriú's landscape, and then continue in the direction of Laranjeiras Beach , the most beautiful in the region, where the blue waves lay placidly on the sandstone that is lost in the lush vegetation.

South Brazil

Past Christ the Redeemer
Past Christ the Redeemer

In Brazil’s south-east, the three largest cities – São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte – form a triangle around which the economy pivots.

All are worth visiting, but the must-sees during your cruise to Brazil are Rio, which really is as beautiful as it seems in the pictures, and the ravishing colonial relic of Paraty which lies between here and booming São Paulo. North of here, the city of Belo Horizonte sits at the heart of Minas Gerais, where the old Portuguese towns of Ouro Preto, Tiradentes and Diamantina drip with colonial history.

The south, encompassing the states of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul, boasts the spectacular Iguaçu Falls on the border with Argentina – one of the great natural wonders of South America. From Curitiba the scenic Serra Verde Express snakes down to the coast, where you can chill out on Ilha do Mel or beach-hop around Florianópolis.

Despite its proximity to the city, São Paulo’s 400km coast has sometimes been overlooked in favour of more glamorous Rio. North-east, towards the border with Rio state, the area is developing rapidly, but still offers great contrasts, ranging from long, wide stretches of sand at the edge of a coastal plain to idyllic-looking coves beneath a mountainous backdrop.
