  • Excellent beach and beautiful, well located, clear waters but strong. Easy access by car, parking and beautiful visual. Worth going with kids to play.

  • One of the most beautiful hiking on the island! 2:30-3: 00 market since the do Matadeiro beach then an hour for the return via Pantano do Sul. If you still have some energy, the mountain at the end of the beach side Pantano offers a unique view!

  • I recommend everyone do the track starting on the beach of Matadeiros and go coasting the beach in a breath-taking view, are 2:00 of walking very quiet. Lagoinha beach is wonderful, but they are destroying the place, is a lot of garbage all over the sand. Unfortunately where the human puts your feet begins the destruction.

  • Very nice beach that only through an incredible trail. On the beach can be reached via a track which part of the Beach Matadeiro or through another track out of Pantano do sul Beach. Did the shorter trail, about 1:00, leaving the beach south of the swamp. The trail requires some fitness and closed-toe shoes to does not slide in wet places, the path the Woods provides a comfortable shade. In addition to the beach you can enjoy and appreciate the beauty of a pond that flows into the Sea (Note: on the day I visited the pond water was very low and warm). The native people of the city said that the pond had broken because of the heavy rains of the previous days, but the stream of water would be responsible to move sand and form again the reservoir/pond. Incredible nature.

  • Divine place, get ready for amazing tracks (just so you can access the beach). The Sylvie's lasts around 2:30 between rocks and paths, wide open; gives us the best views! The swamp thing lasts on average 1:00 offers more infrastructure; However does not have that view! Take food, have no trade! The most beautiful that I visited in Florianópolis.

  • Did the longest trail, starting at Armação beach. We left the car in a parking lot next to the beach for the overnight. Passing the Armação Beach Matadeiro beach comes and then the trail to the Pond. There were about 4 miles of route with duration of 3:00 carrying cargo bag because we were going to camp there. At the end of the trail before arriving at the beach on the right has a point (we cook with her and added disinfectant to drink). The camping area is quite large, having ready next to the pond and others more distant. We went on holiday of the dead. Had a lot of people during the day, but most didn't stay for the night. Very beautiful place. Recommend going. Can be reached by a trail less, but at least once is valid do this longest trail, the view is worth it.

  • After a long is hard to track you will be rewarded with a beautiful and almost deserted beach. The beach has a Lake almost in your core. Lake of clear water and calm. Ideal for relaxing and for who took children. The sea water is agitated and in some parts there are large gaps in the sand, making a step forward to increase depth enough. Please be very careful. Take enough water and food, as the beach does not have structure of bar/restaurant. There is also space where people are camping.

  • Wonderful place, a path full of surprises, both by your path as by sight, reserved beach with dunes. Has place to camp near the river. Perfect for those looking for adventure, peace and nature.
