Pantano do Sul Beach, Florianopolis

4.0
#18 of 34 in Beaches in Florianopolis
Beach Nature / Park
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.

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.
