4.1
#24 of 34 in Beaches in Florianopolis
Beach Nature / Park
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).

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.

  • More distant and quiet beach, interesting view from Canasvieiras. Good to go with the kids and the family.

  • Kept a certain air of exclusivity over the years while others are popularizing. It has wonderful views. The prices are only acceptable in the off-season because in season are exaggerated.

  • 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
