:: Best month to travel to Bombinhas

Bombinhas , like many of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil, has been a victim in the last decades of a significant over-exploitation of real estate and has been transformed into a destination that receives a flood of tourists between the months of January and February. This obviously takes away some of the attractive features that are available to you, keep in mind that many of the beaches of Bombinhas are usually small, with very narrow bands of sand, and it is not pleasant to be totally surrounded of crowds on a beach that stands out for giving us a unique contact with nature.

That is why we recommend visiting this beautiful peninsula in the south of Brazil during the month of March(as long as it is not carnival), the beaches are much less crowded at this time and the accommodation is much cheaper than before the carnival.
