Jurere Beach Village

Jurerê Beach Village is an enterprise of the Habitasul group at Jurerê Beach, Florianópolis. It is a hotel with apartments and convention centre. The fore dune has been revegetated with native species of restinga (sand dune vegetation) as part of a foredune revegetation. The revegetation project started in 1998 due to a court decision and currently the area is being monitored. It is worth pointing out that the boardwalk, which connects the hotel to the beach, was the first initiative to permit beach access integrated with dune protection on Santa Catarina Island.
