Morro das Pedras beach, Florianopolis

(4.6/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Blue rough sea, tall rocks, and wild waves for surfing are the trademarks of Morro das Pedras beach. This beach is ideal for experienced surfers, since the waves are fast and powerful. The rocky landscape also provides for a nice photo backdrop as you stroll along the 2 km (6500 ft) of loose sandy beach. The long stretch is a popular place for beach soccer and hiking. The natural beauty of the surrounding will make you feel as if you are in a lush park. It is often a place for whale watching as well. On top of the hill nearby is the Casa de Retiro dos Padres Jesuitas, constructed using the stones from the area, with a viewing platform of the natural surroundings. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Florianopolis holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Morro das Pedras beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Beautiful beach! Totally wild, pristine place, with rocks and stones encircling the site. At the top, there is the convent of the Morro das Pedras, another unmissable tourist attraction for visitors of this beautiful city.

  • the beaches are very clean, and you can enjoy if you don't like the crowd. It is very quiet and with big waves

  • We stayed on the Hill of stones by the Airbnb, the beach is too beautiful, the sea can be dangerous, has many surfers ... It is close to many good places to visit in Floripa, as the beach and the island of Campeche. Is a super quiet and pleasant location.
