Armacao Beach, Florianopolis

4.2
#18 of 68 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.
