Pantano do Sul Beach, Florianopolis

4.2
#21 of 68 in Outdoors in Florianopolis
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. Make Pantano do Sul Beach a centerpiece of your Florianopolis vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Florianopolis trip app .

  • Very picturesque and quiet... with colorful boats and not very big waves, between mountains... cheaper parking which in other beaches of the South of Floripa, today we pay 10 reais a half block from the beach... several places to eat by the sea.

  • That beautiful beach, loved even seawater most beautiful but cold! Has a restaurant where the staff wore a uniform with the face of a gentleman (I don't remember the name) this restaurant has the worst service I've ever seen in a restaurant, we ordered the menu for about 4 times, and yet was not delivered We had requests for soda water juice and nothing was delivered when delivered came with different juice to which I had asked. Summary we had to move because I couldn't stay on the edge of this restaurant super disorganized.

  • The beach is not very beautiful, but has great restaurants. Boat trip leaving for Lagoinha do Leste, skirting the wonderful walls with cracks, worth checking out. Kayak rentals, careful with the current Navy left the beach.

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.
