The Iperoig Beach (Praia do Iperoig) also known as “Cruzeiro”, has many importante historical events took place there, such as the “Tamoio’s Confederation” and the “Iperoig’s Armistice”.

The beach sand once received the “Poem to the Virgin”, written by the Jesuit José de Anchieta, and because of it, there is a statue of the priest at that place.

The beach offers excellent tourist and comercial infrastructure.

It is not a beach for swimming. So its attractions are not on the beach itself, but on the trade we found on Iperoig Avenue (Avenida Iperoig).
