Prainha da Barra da Lagoa, Florianopolis

4.6
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.
