  • The beach is beautiful, with a little choppy sea. The frequency is not so interesting, with lots of people doing the beach restaurant. The beach is crowded with people and most crowded areas is hard to even walk to the sea. I prefer soft, Cruet, Joaquina and Jurerê Internacional, in that order. She is hotter to bathe in relation to Jurerê Internacional, but with a frequency slightly worse.

  • I love that beach in Florianópolis. quiet, clean, quiet! I miss only of kiosks and other facilities and restaurants are concentrated at one point, but maybe that's why it's so preserved.

  • Parking lot near the Sea ($ 10.00) ... in high season the sands are very crowded and hectic. Choppy waters ... different from the ilha do Campeche ...
