Armacao Beach, Florianopolis

4.5
#17 of 95 in Outdoors in Florianopolis
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.

  • I went fishing and I found a piece of shit. Full of stones for all over and where stones had network, so for those who want to go fishing, do not recommend. Unless you have the morning and meet a peak for fishing, etc. Now if you want to go take a shower, go to is top. High Beach, where it flows into a shallow riozinho which is like a swimming pool. Not to mention that in General, both the beach as the places with rocks and networks are very beautiful. Just to fish I found bad, but it could be because I don't know the peaks. Have to go with time and easy to explore it all.
