Prainha da Barra da Lagoa, Florianopolis
(5/5 based on 25+ 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.

  • Prainha is next to the beach of Barra da Lagoa, crossing the bridge and a short walk, ready you this in Prainha, a beauty of the beach was practically empty when we went, after enjoying the beauties of praia do the trail up to the pools, it's worth it.

  • A delightful Beach, small and quiet. Easy access, is next to the Barra da Lagoa. Just across the pedestrian bridge and walk through the maze of alleyways in the neighborhood, but it has cards that help. A good place to go with family, friends, etc. Beware of rocks.

  • This little beach is 5 minutes walk, or even that of Barra da Lagoa. Small and beautiful, it's worth the visit! After it starts up a trail that leads to a natural pool. On the day we went, the sea was moved and didn't see the pool!
