Armacao beach, Florianopolis
(4.2/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
As one of the main fishing centers on the island of Santa Catarina, Armacao beach's main draw is the excellent (and affordable) seafood, fresh off the fishermen's boats. The beach itself is quiet and perfect for a contemplative walk, though it's powerful waves also attract surfers. Historically, Armacao beach played an important part in the whaling trade. Today the whales are heavily protected, and boats will take you on whale watching tours.

  • Who has the opportunity to visit the South of the island, you can't help but go in and Matadeiros, a coladinha in the other. Frame is very beautiful, preserved, clean ... its structure does not "hits" the essence of the place, a beach of fishermen. When I went it was cold and my experience was more of contemplation, which has a small bridge linking the beach to a rock where if you have a lovely view of the two beaches, frame and Matadeiros. Armação Beach Matadeiros can be accessed by a small track.

  • This is a beach of fishermen, calm water for a bath, structures of tents to cater for swimmers and sunbathers, very good restaurants.
