Joaquina beach, Florianopolis

(4.4/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
Due to its soaring sand dunes and stellar waves, Joaquina beach is one of the best and most legendary surfing beaches in the country, and perhaps the world. During summer, which is from December to February in Brazil, this beach is extremely busy with bronzed bodies and cars trapped in traffic jams just to spend a little bit of time on the sandy white beach. The winter in Brazil, around June through August is the best time for surfing on the waves that reach up to 2.5 m (8 ft) high.

  • Clueless tourists crowd in what was one of the Brazilian surf paradises! Barbecue on the beach, sound dispute between tents and gazebos that take the vision of the other regulars, are some of the things that are taking the magic of this beach. Yes, the beach is beautiful, perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches of Florianopolis, but visit in low season.

  • The beach with more young people and good wave of la.isla. With sports to see, music in all the paradores, good places to park and walking stroll or just have fun. They cannot pass along this beach.

  • And a nice beach, but the water was too cold the day many people in a short space. Counted 12 bus and 4 vans if travel outside the indindaveis cars. Don't come back.
