Praia do Rosa

Blessed with over a mile of beach and a laid back atmosphere, Praia do Rosa is one of the best places in Brazil for whale watching. Between the months of July and November dozens of southern right whales come here to breed and can be seen from the shore or on special boat trips. Further south, the colonial town of Laguna is home to a remarkable symbiotic spectacle wherein wild dolphins help herd fish into local fishermen’s nets in return for feeding on some of the catch. Laguna was where the Italian unifier, Garibaldi, met and lived with his Brazillian wife for many years, and today one can visit their house which has been kept as a small museum.
