Ponta das Canas Beach, Florianopolis

(3.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Ponta das Canas Beach has over 2 kilometers (over 1 mile) of soft white sand, with calm water and pleasant temperatures. The bottom of the sea descends gradually, making this a popular beach for families with children. Jet ski or fish here, or hike up a short and easy trail, leading to another local beach. Restaurants along the waterfront serve fresh oyster dishes, which you can enjoy right on the sand. The beach is a melting pot of languages and accents, with tourists from all over Latin America. Blend in with the crowd by testing a few words of the popular "Portunhol" (a mix of Portuguese and Spanish). Put Ponta das Canas Beach into our Florianopolis vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
