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.

  • Too much!! I travel the years to that location, wonderful. Be sure to visit the island of fishermen, which is located between the beach of armacao and Sylvie.

  • Although it is not good for swimming for being too cold water there has access to the beautiful beach Matadeiro, end of campaigns with one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen and in high season it is possible to go to campeche island

  • Another place we use to accomplish our photo shoot on the beach are many boats against or in the sand, which gives the environment a climate of calm and a different beauty.
