Description

Our Expert Guide will lead you on a 10 km trek to explore the enchanting natural landscapes, pristine beaches, and ancient ruins of the southern tip of Santa Catarina Island. This is an ideal excursion for those who love being outside and would like to get off the beaten tourist path.

During our outing, we'll follow a little known trail full of amazing scenic beauty, which stretches across the entire southern tip of Santa Catarina Island. As we make our way down the island's rocky coast, we'll enter an impressive stretch of well-preserved rainforest where we'll be surrounded by enchanting trees, plants, and wildlife. Afterwards, we'll explore four stunning, uncrowded beaches (Solidão, Saquinho, Praia dos Seixos, and Naufragados). Here, you'll be able to enjoy clear water streams, amazing panoramic views, a wealth of flora and fauna, and the virgin beaches' natural, wild beauty.

Next, we'll come to Ponta do Pasto and its "pebble beach" which boasts a breathtaking view of the "3 Sisters" Islands. As we continue making our way along the trail, we'll find a different kind of attraction, an anthropological one in fact. You'll have the unique opportunity of visiting the history-filled remains of the ancient Azorean communities which once inhabited Saquinho and Naufragados. This is probably one of the most impressive trails on Santa Catarina Island, although it is still little known. Finally, before undertaking the last 3 km of our journey to Caieira da Barra do Sul, we'll stop at Naufragados Beach to enjoy a refreshing dip in its crystalline river or sea waters. The perfect way to cool off while surrounded by dreamlike views!

Join us for a unique adventure, exploring the nearly untouched beaches of southern Santa Catarina, while enjoying a healthy activity outdoors and discovering captivating plants, animals, and ancient ruins.
