Beautiful views , sand dunes, animated, fit surfers ...but not safe & a bit too crowded for us...! We saw about 6 sea rescues from the life guards...

Wonderful beach, also suited for surfing and nice place to view. The restaurants are a bit over-prized and the place is somewhat touristic .

There's a good balance here with a selection of bars and restaurants at the "town" end of the beach but it was only a short walk to get beyond them and enjoy a more natural beach. Public transport to and from the beach is a bit limited so make sure you know when to catch your bus home. Good day... More

This is one of the most beautiful places I have been so far. The surfing community gives it a nice hype vibe.

This beach was fun. We got drinks made in pineapples and coconuts, there were lots of surfers, and they have surfing classes as well. A fairly busy beach though. Some vendors here which was neat, they aren't all over you like in some other countries.

Near Praia Mole, this beach is gorgeous and has sand dunes. You can rent a sandboard and go have fun. This activity is very affordable and very pleasant to go during the sunset. Awesome view!

we have visited almost all beaches in Florianopolis, but Joaquina was, definitely, one of our favourites. It is better if you go before the sunrise, the beach is quite empty and you can see lots of birds flying and, sure, the beautiful sunrise. It is perfect for meditation.

If you are a fan of surfing or just enjoy getting away from it all, Joaquina beach is one of your best bets in the island of Florianopolis. Not far from the city but yet very little development around it, combined with miles and miles of dunes makes it the perfect beach for those people who do not enjoy seating... More
