Morro das Pedras beach, Florianopolis

(300+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • Paradise, where you can see the island of Campeche and its natural beauties. Excellent for surfers, for having good waves.

  • This beach is a must-see attraction for visitors to the island. Very beautiful and also a bit deserted. Breathtaking visuals.

  • Despite not having seen a lot of structure, I found the most beautiful beach of the island. You can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the gazebo and enjoy an almost deserted beach.
