Pantano do Sul Beach, Florianopolis

(4/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Tranquil beach and extensive hot water. Swamp of the South is the largest and most traditional fishing beach of Santa Catarina, with many fishing colonies. With good dining options, Pantano do Sul specializes in seafood. Peaceful and traditional residents, known by the affectionate nickname of "manézinhos", are fishermen by profession and refill the restaurants of the region. On this beach that are the most distant archaeological record and Shell mounds formed by ancient shell deposits, dating from approximately 4500 years.
