Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Once a fishing village that supported an idyllic life for fishermen, Garopaba Beach 's beauty caused a town to grow around the humble village. On your visit, you'll see a bustling, little metropolis with houses dotting the hills rising from the sea. There you can rent a room at a pousada (a private bed and breakfast), or at the city's one hotel. Spend your days on Garopaba Beach relaxing with a book in hand, sunbathing, swimming or come by night and join a party on the beach. During the season, the town's population swells in size and the beach is jam-packed with umbrellas and vendors selling food.
