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.

  • I've been on other trips. This time we went to this beach for lunch on several occasions. Super I recommend, nice atmosphere and visual fascinating.

  • Despite good restaurants as Ahamed and Sarah, in infrastructure for the bather. The sea's gentle but the water is cold, the strip of sand also has movement of cars and boats, which doesn't encourage getting sunbathing with his foot in the sand. The appearance of the beach appears to be dirty, but it's the amount of carbon in the region which gives the black tone on the beach.

  • When we arrived on this beach, looks like we're in another world, so spectacular, so well guarded by residents, talk to the local people, hear the voice of other crops, new foods, conversations with manezinhos
