Praia da Galheta, Florianopolis

4.3
#20 of 68 in Outdoors in Florianopolis
With super-fine, white sand, framed by rolling green hills and giant boulders, Praia da Galheta is one of Ilha de Santa Catarina’s prettiest beaches. Only accessible if you walk 10-minutes through the dunes from Praia Mole, the beach is also one of the last strongholds on the entire coast of the island where nature is totally unspoiled. As you take a peaceful stroll, you will see wild orchids growing, and the silence is broken only by the waves of the crystal-clear ocean. As there is a complete lack of infrastructure, to keep hydrated you can drink from a small fresh-water spring, which also serves as a refreshing shower. This paradise is perfect for you to enjoy nature at its best, and, as it is also the island’s only clothing-optional beach, you can interpret that as you please.

  • Clear waters and clean, rough sea, little structure of bars, my access is by trail and Nudism optional

  • The most beautiful we could meet in Floripa. With access via trail from Praia Mole, the look of high in the middle of the track is a must. Is a beach where naturism is practiced, but you don't need necessarily be without clothes to frequent it. Each in your style. Has tents with drinks and snacks at fair prices, considering the difficulty to reach the site. The greatest difficulty is even walk at Mole Beach, in function of the sand very cute.

  • Is one of the best beaches on the island, but there's no way to go, due to being Beach for the practice of nudism, we've been embarrassment with men and upright bodies.

  • The beach is Beautiful, Wonderful, water has several stones to take beautiful photos, nude, but it is optional of course, when I had multiple naked people, men and women. I know, I did not like much, but for those who enjoy is a wonderful choice..

  • The beach is beautiful and still preserves an air of wild to be leaning on the mountain and the sea is so calm but Tb isn't deep, you can walk right in the water before it gets deep. In relation to Nudism ... don't think summer bodies naked and beautiful people, on the contrary, St. George needs to go through there and eliminate the Dragons! Lol (kidding, but with a kernel of truth)

  • Wonderful Place. On the day we went there was no one naked no rs (we went the week before Christmas). We saw many surfers. The beach is beautiful! Clean water! A super quiet walk up there.
