Prainha da Barra da Lagoa, Florianopolis

(35+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • It is one of the most enchanting beaches of the island, ideal for beautiful photos and a little isolated. It is small, but very landscape. It is road to a trekking toward the natural pools. Nearby there is a bar where you can buy drinks, sandwiches, snacks, etc.

  • She is small and not enough to get crowded, I believe so, I fell in love with this place! The water is cold, but the waves are not as strong as in Barra da Lagoa, which helps a lot in time for a shower! Have a quiet trail for arrive, which in large part is paved. It is a beach that I visit every time I go to Florianópolis.
