The city is located at the mouth of Rio Itajai (Itajai-Acu River) and on the Atlantic Ocean's coast. Here is homeported Brazil's largest fishing fleet. Also here is the state's largest university (Univali). The city hosts one of the biggest Brazilian music festivals (held in October).

The local economy is based mainly on shipping trade. Port Itajai (locode BRITJ) handles ~1,6% of the country's total export of goods, ranking it as Brazil's 8th biggest exporter. Most of the export goods are animal products, followed by poultry meat, pork and other processed and preserved meats, including frozen bovine meat.

On December 9, 2022, the Municipality of Itajai (via SPI-Superintendence of the Port) signed with APM Terminals (currently the world's largest cargo port management company/The Hague Netherlands-based) a Temporary Lease Agreement/transitory contract for Port Itajai, which allowed APM Terminals to continue to operate the Port.
