Prainha da Barra da Lagoa, Florianopolis

(40+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • The beach is soon after crossing the suspension bridge, offers all the infrastructure for tourism, lodging, restaurant and bars. The prices are good and there are cool options of trails, other beaches and activities in General. Despite the beach be quite small, is very dirty, the micro trash up aluminum cans has in large proportion, has bins there, but the people are swine, last time I went, there was a thin layer of black water that gushed forth and he was on the beach, or sewage, or any septic tank that overflowed, I don't know. All I know is that it was so.
