  • The trail to the beach is a little bit tiring. But it worths all the efforts. It's an amazing view and a beautiful beach. It's advisable to take food and drink with you.  more »
  • We've made a trail that gives access to the Southern swamp. Just in front of where you start the trail has a 24h parking and you can leave your car there with tranquility. Before starting the trail you can take an excellent cane juice on a small sale that has at the beginning of the trail. The trail is not easy, go prepared with water, repellent and sunscreen. Don't forget a suitable footwear. I don't advise you to make a slipper. Around 1:30 a.m. to go and 1h to return. During your journey you can take great photos at strategic points. The beach is great, no crowd, quiet. It has a 3 points selling drinks and snacks (I believe they only work in summer). For surf lovers The beach has great conditions. It's worth the paddled. The sea is agitated but you can take a shower, if you prefer you can opt for the lagoon. Unmissable is trail. If you are in Florianópolis, schedule and do. But don't forget to get ready and it won't be easy at all. For those who do not want to make the trail, you can have access by boat too. A little high value.

  • Excellent beach. It has no structure or buildings. Very natural. The difficult access makes it harder to be overcrowded, but it's definitely worth it. The sea and the lagoon is amazing, and you can even swim with the fish. Be sure to be in great shape. Don't leave your trash behind.
  • Top great, I'm so happy to my trip
