Matadeiro Beach, Florianopolis

4.8
#7 of 68 in Outdoors in Florianopolis
Enclosed by lush vegetation and a mountain that shares its name, Matadeiro Beach is accessible only on foot but well worth the walk. The 1000 m (0.6 miles) beach is a paradise for nature lovers. With relatively few visitors, it will feel like you have it all to yourself. Surfing and free-diving are popular activities, and a short hike up the hill will lead you to a stunning view. Along one of the many trails you can follow from the beach is a curious rock formation known as the “Matadeiro cave.” Local legend has it that this was once a center of energy. With our world travel planner, Florianopolis attractions like Matadeiro Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Matadeiro beach is more far reaching, to access the sand you have to go through a small trail. Is more reserved, has less movement, but the sea bathing is calm but with waves for you float.

  • Loved it! I went there to surf. The day was beautiful, the transparent water. even in the background you could see clearly the legs and fish. It is very good for children. at least on the day I went to the sea was calm, without holes. There is a small trail from the armação Beach, the quiet and nothing tiring to get to the beach.

  • The beach is hot, heavy sea, ideal for the practice of surfing, but for those who do not risk worth the stroll along the beach, it's very cute and much nature around.

  • Access to the beach is backed by a trail from the armação beach. The trail is not suitable for wheelchair users and people with reduced mobility because it has several steep hills. The track is made around 10 minutes and has beautiful views of the tip of the campaigns and the armação beach. The beach has a good stretch of sand, besides being beautiful and with various shades of blue. In the days of Sun the beauty of beach is more prominent. Currently owns two bars in operation. The sea water is cold, a little agitated and with great presence of surfers. Is at the end of the beach which has the trail to the beach of Lagoinha East. The trail lasts around 2 hours.

  • You have to know that beach! To get there you have to make a trail of +/-6 minutes. The trail is paved and easy to access. Who came to Floripa and doesn't Matadeiro Beach met don't know what you missed!
