  • Wonderful place. Warm water, ideal for children. gets very crowded in season and is difficult parking since the access to the beach is not so easy. You're surprised co. Franelero so get ready, but that is common on the beaches of Florianopolis. Don't go hungry because there are many food options both from the restaurant and kiosks and stalls. There are public restrooms but do not recommend. Ideal place for families with children.

  • Great place for the kids and for those seeking escape from the massive crowd of other places. However, one must be careful about abusive charges by the attendants of the kiosks.

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.
