Joaquina Beach, Florianopolis

4.5
#2 of 68 in Outdoors in Florianopolis
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.

  • One of the beaches that we like, very beautiful with clear and fine sand, transparent waters, with good infrastructure of restaurants, shops and parking on site, ideal for surfers, with large sand Strip.
