Prainha da Barra da Lagoa, Florianopolis

(4.7/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Cross a bridge and take a short trail to reach Prainha da Barra da Lagoa, a secluded tropical beach that spans only 70 m (229 ft). This part of the coast faces the Atlantic Ocean and, despite its high waves, is not suited for surfing because of the mild current. On sunny days, you can see through the crystal-clear water to the sand below. Bring a football and a group of friends to test your skills in a scratch match against a local team. You can also participate in the local samba competition, which takes place every Saturday at the only restaurant in the area. Take a look at our Florianopolis vacation planner to schedule your visit to Prainha da Barra da Lagoa and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Cute Beach, you follow a trail super quiet and we got has a small beach with an incredible sight, very green stones. The water is delicious, it's wonderful to enjoy your day there, and there's a bar with everything you need close by, including a restaurant. If you walk a little further you will find the natural pool that are perfect for swimming and jumping.
