Pantano do Sul Beach, Florianopolis
(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by breathtaking mountains, the beach of Pantano do Sul Beach is a quiet retreat, far removed from the metropolis. Find a secluded spot, sit, and watch the small fishing boats bobbing on the ocean, their work done for the day. In this tranquil state you will think that time has stood still, sometime in the past, adding to the special charm of the beach. Restaurants, specializing in seafood, prepare delicious food from the fresh catch delivered daily by the fishermen, and as you enjoy your meal, you will see regular patrons enjoying theirs too. Bar Arante is one such place, but with a twist; thousands of messages, notes, and poems decorate its walls and rafters. This tradition dates back to the '70s, when visiting campers left a message at the bar for their friend. Inspired by free shots of homemade cachaça--another tradition that happily lives on--, the banal note evolved into an impressive display of creativity. Have a shot yourself, and release your inner poet.

  • Is in the South of the island, the beach of calm sea and many fishermen in the village center has the House of lace makers who make income from ban, a very interesting art, worth knowing.

  • It is a fishing region but the beach is inviting. Is extensive and with good strip of sand. There are sites for fine dining.

  • In is one of the extremes in the South of the island of Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, in the part facing the ocean, is a quiet beach of fishermen, tourists seeking more to enjoy the scenery than to shower. It is one of the few where people usually Park your car in the sand, but with the recent high tides, not recommend to do this currently. In the location bar of the Ahir, an ancient fishermen's bar, full of notes, very traditional (and expensive!) specializes in seafood. Recommend going by car, because the site is too far from the center of the island. On site you can try to park on the street or, in case of difficulty, in some of the small parking lots that are part. Worth a quick there.
