Morro das Pedras beach, Florianopolis

4.6
#21 of 69 in Outdoors in Florianopolis
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.

  • Morro das Pedras Beach, lies in the South of the island, the beach is coarse sand and strong waves and is the only distro that they tip even if you're walking away from the edge, but where are the corner stones is something magical and as the beach is calm without much movement of people It's a place that makes you meditate and feel the presence of God. Let's meditate.

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.
