(4.2/5 based on 460+ 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.

Today the whales are heavily protected, and boats will take you on whale watching tours.

  • Here in Florianopolis beaches much better than this. There's no restaurant, the sand is dirty, I found the sea water with a strong smell. I didn't like. Would not come on this beach again

  • The Armação Beach has the area darker and thicker and the sea waves breaking over the edge. Is not a recommended for children, but when it's quiet bathing is very good and much better than on the Beach Matadeiro, next. The beach is very quiet, has a very peculiar nature and even at the height of summer it is not necessary to be fighting for space in the sand. The Pier that separates the river Overflow and leads up the hill where the boats for Ilha do Campeche is a very nice point, the Hill it is possible to have an incredible view of the two beaches (frame and Sylvie). I really enjoyed the ambiance and the beach itself.
