  • We were a morning there, since our hotel was 50 metres from the beach. Very nice and quiet. Good views also. Recommended to visit it.

  • Stronghold of surfers are healed, always surprising, sea beach of edge plate of soup, water as Champagne, fresh and bubbly. Problem is that it gives a lot of neck pain, so if you look around, checking out women of beauty i n c r e d i t to v and l. Has courage and health to face all this?

  • The Mole beach is a favourite of the manézinhos, inhabitants of Florianópolis, especially young people. Has great restaurants with lounge chairs, reclining chairs, gazebo, etc. Comfort and nature.
