Beach
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 love this beach, although no such strip of sand because of the rocks. What I really enjoyed was that crossing a bridge Online's walk is a paradise with waves hitting the rocks. A paradise! Super recommend!

  • Beach without excitement in town. We go through where the river flows into the sea and went to the trapiche. Up the Hill you can see the beach of Lagoinha do Leste which have access only by trail. The landscape under sunshine in the afternoon was great! definitely worth taking the time to get to know the beaches on the South of the island.

  • It is a small fishing boats Beach and many gulls. It is an area of rocks, but it has lowered to the sea. It has a beautiful view. It is one of the points where they exit the boat to island Campeche. I recommend out from there to the excursion to visit this place, without having to spend much time. You don't have another attractive rather than sight and the Church, but it is a real natural beauty.
