Bombinhas & Porto Belo, Brazil by urbane

It's been a while since I posted a photographic thread, so I guess I'll start with some pictures I took on my last trip to Brazil this February (2008). I'll focus on Bombinhas & surroundings in Santa Catarina state, Brazil. Bombinhas is a beach town located on a peninsula a few hours north of Florianopolis, the capital of Santa Catarina state (pictures will follow). I spent four days there before going to Florianopolis.

Here a satellite image of the location:

Now let's start the show with the crowded beach of Bombinhas:

Beautiful Praia do Estaleiro.....I much prefer these small remote beaches to the long crowded ones of Bombinhas and Bombas

How cool to see those photos! I grew up going every summer to the largest beach in the region, called Balneario Camboriu, just after Itapema. God I miss it! I'll be in Brazil in December and I'll sure be going there!!!
Thanx for the photos!

Oh nice pics! How did you like the area? IMO Bombinha has the best beaches of our coast, but I really don't go there too much because of the awful traffic jams they have. (a road linking BR-101 and Bombinhas is being planned)

But I used to spend every single summer from 1996 to 2002 or so in Itapema, so yeah, rly nice pics. I miss our beaches, especially here in the 35-deg-heat of Bucharest hahah.

Cool, what else did you visit in SC? And why did you come to SC? It's not too usual to see foreigners that are not from South America over there!

Thanks, I liked the area a lot (the beaches have beautiful sand, and the sky in southern Brazil is gorgeous)....I guess I was lucky since I didn't encounter any traffic jams going to Bombinhas.

I have been traveling to Parana` more than once for personal reasons. From there I take a trip to the coast. Last time I had gone to the Litoral Paranaense, this time to Santa Catarina. I also visited Florianopolis and Riberao da Ilha (Azorean settlement near Floripa) while in Santa Catarina. I wanted to check Joinville on the way back but didn't have time. Next time I would enjoy exploring the interior of SC (Joinville, Blumenau, Pomerode, Parque de Imparados da Serra etc.).
