Canasvieiras, Florianopolis
(2.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
A hotspot for South American visitors, Canasvieiras is known for its nightlife and calm seas. Take a stroll through the town streets for shopping and clubs, then head to the beach for a dip in cool waters. The town’s population is just over 10,000 making it a quaint beach getaway. However, in peak season after dark, the coast is hopping with music and dancing. This combo of peaceful beach and energetic nightlife makes Canasvieiras a great spot for the traveler who wants both.  Our Florianopolis vacation planner makes visiting Canasvieiras and other Florianopolis attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • At the height of summer is too CROWDED, too foreign. Small sand track, making it difficult to walk. But downtown you can enjoy a little Yes. Too bad it's a bit sloppy.

  • Canasvieiras is the worst Beach in Florianópolis. I went one day and came out scared. Very berreta, the Center is of the most unpleasant that it, it is not style rustic as in many beaches in the South of Brazil, and the beach is dirty, small, contaminated water (because evening downloaded atmospheric lorries in the stream which leads to this beach and is often filled with "families" as you could find, for example in Santa Teresita. I would not go there or free.

  • The beach itself is not a big deal, narrow strip of sand and some sites unsuitable for bathing, but has a very good structure, with hotels, guesthouses, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, allowing the tourists don't need to move a lot for shopping, dining and entertainment.
