  • The trail beginning at the Beach South 2 km Swamp virtually all in staircases, with climbs, descents, some ramps and a few flat parts, i.e., requires a bit of the legs, but the beach, the views and the possibility of moving up in the Stone Crown (it is necessary to do another track to climb up the rock) makes all the effort worthwhile.

  • The place may seem terrible for those who don't like nature and trails, has a magnificent track (but can also be reached by boat, has no restaurant on the beach so it is important to leave food, on the other hand when you get to the end of the trail is one of the most beautiful views

  • We made a visit to the beach, high season R$35 coming out of southern Swamp, it takes about 25 min. is very worthwhile ... the beach is wonderful, with a river of hot water, very good and even the peak of the Crown which yields beautiful pictures for sure. Reserve breath, but is a place for a nice sunny day!

  • 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.

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.
