Protected by an offshore reef, the coast is lined with white-sand beaches.

To the south, Praia do Francês beach has surfable waves. Beyond Jatiúca beach, the 'Coral Coast' continues north for many kilometers. The warehouses in the renovated port district of Jaraguá are renowned for their nightlife. The Mercado do Artesanato market focuses on regional craftwork. On the city's landward side, the Mundaú Lagoon has calm water, shrimp fishing communities and rustic waterfront bars.
