This 11-day beach road trip in the south-east of Brazil will take you from Curitiba in the state of Parana to the beaches of Santa Catarina. Travel in a historic train along the magical Atlantic Forest, to the charming villages of Morretes and Antonina, visit the secluded island of Ilha do Mel, then head down south to the beaches of Bombinhas. It is well worth stopping for a few days in the modern city of Florianopolis which has so much to offer. Later head on to the beautiful hidden gem of Guarda do Embau and finish off in the renown Praia do Rosa. In the right season you can definitely see whales here. The South of Brazil has long beaches with calm waters, perfect for families travelling with toddlers. Swim, snorkel, go on easy hikes, take boat trips, practice stand-up paddling, learn how to surf and more. Stay in charming small hotels, taste local delicacies and recharge the batteries. The length of the trip can be adapted and the start and finish can be the other way around, starting in Florianopolis and ending in Curitiba. The program is an excellent choice for a family beach break, for a group of friends or couples, as well as for senior travellers.
