Prainha da Barra da Lagoa, Florianopolis

4.7
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.

  • The times wanted to visit. Best place. Almost exclusively, the beach to the bar has a bridge and following a few corridors that lead until then, will only drive to the po you. I was on the beach that is right in front and it was very good. The water is really cold but not in the way of anything. Has the natural pools ahead but I couldn't get there, we did half of the trail.

  • If you go to Lagoa bar, one has to cross the bridge and walk, one must be directed toward a trail, but before is a small and quiet beach called Prainha and is of the most beautiful, some of the people but not in excess , well clear and calm water!

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.
