Praia Ponta Das Canas, Florianopolis

(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Praia Ponta Das Canas 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 Praia Ponta Das Canas into our Florianopolis vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Huge beach, big sandy track makes the beach be very quiet even when you're full. Good for bathing, good kiosks, and hotels in the region. Clear and tranquil waters and easy to find parking.

  • This is the beach that you must choose in Canasvieiras if you want peace of mind, no stacking of people, great beaches, etc. She is a little away from the center of the rod, but in the collective local or with auto, is very close to the Centre.

  • Nice beach...but there are better ones. First of all, it's a bit complicated to reach Pontas Das Camas beach. Once you there, you'll see it's not as big as other beaches in the area (e.g. Canasvieras, Praia Brava or Praia dos Ingleses) The water is also somehow dirtier than those beaches I've mentioned before. However, the landscape is beautiful and the beach it's less crowded and so better for relaxing.
  • Ohhh praia boa
  • No
  • The beach is great, calm sea and clean, ideal for those with small children and if you pass a small barrier of stones that has at the end gives the beach you can enjoy a transparent water that the view is impossible not to fall in the water. In this part I noticed q she's clean as qd the tide back some dirt and the water gets cloudy.

  • Great beach. Calm seas with clear water and stretch of sand to put the cedeiras and the parasol, the place has restaurants on the beach with a good structure, and lancherias by the sea. The shower is the only thing not worth using, as it has a very strong smell and bad. The beach has sellers of popsicles, but restaurants also offer the best-known brands. Access to the beach is quiet and there is free parking.
