  • It's a place to venture out, slipping through the dunes is an activity that requires effort, because to go down fast, but climbing the soft sand dunes is not easy. With children take into consideration the wind drag more sand in the lower part the hitting them more, my little didn't like. The place is beautiful!! A wonder of nature but need to be adventurous. Has place to stop the car. Oh! There's nothing but a small tent to buy water.

  • Gave it to kill the Miss Maranhençes Sheets-the dunes has some angles it looks like we see the beautiful dunes. I didn't see a pond, but we were able to enjoy a late afternoon above the sky changing colour every minute, very nice!

  • If you want to have a good time with falls in the dunes you must go, the rent in high season is 20 Reis per person

  • These dunes are amazing. It costs R$20 per hour and they give you a bracelet so you are the only person allowed to use it for that hour. It is quite high and tirering so if your physical conditions aren't the best you might struggle with it. There are car parks nearby and they cost around R$10/20 per day but you can also park on the street and it will be fine. Some car parks have showers and toilets included on these prices. The boards are in good condition here and the staff is helpful. They also give you wax so the board can get more speed. The beach is nearby and you can get there walking. If the temperature is less than 25 degrees the water might be cold and it might bring jelly fishes. There are restaurants and bars in there. The dunes are just perfect and the moisture from the sea helps it to be in the best condition. Do not buy water from the place in front of it as it tastes like swage and it looks like they have bottled it themselves.
  • Awesome natural dunes with a great view to practice San board.
  • Breathtaking, and so much fun, you can rent a board to do some sand surfing or bring your own, the view is stunning. Just be prepared to find sand in every nook and cranny of your body.
  • Incredible landscape. Sandboarding was fun
  • cool place, nice view and interesting activity the sand board.

Where to stay in Florianopolis

To get a true taste of the city's culture on your trip to Florianopolis, it's best to stay in the historical center on Santa Catarina Island. There you'll find plenty of accommodations--a significantly better selection than on the mainland--ranging from budget guesthouses and hostels to luxury hotels. Many guests, however, choose to take advantage of the island's charming nature by staying away from the city center, in the lakeside district of Lagoa da Conceição. For easy access to the best surf beaches on the island, stay a couple miles farther away at Mole Beach or Barra da Lagoa.
