Accessible only by foot, Matadeiro beach is reserved for the ones seeking peace and tranquily, throughout the year. During the summer season, the beach gets crowd, but still a great place to enjoy nature. A must see is a little blue house that sells among refreshments and snacks (very good sweet corn) second-hand books.

If you go to Armação beach you must go to Matadeiro. It is a very small beach but it is beautiful to see the surfers surfing there. It is great for this sport.

Beautiful!! But if you are not tired and want to take a 2,5 hours walk to Lagoinha do Leste, you will meet an even more beautiful place. Guided tours can be hired with the guys from Lagoa Boutique Guest House. They offer packages with acommodation, vegetarian food and trips. Cheers!

Matadeiros beach is nature in its most. Beatiful, isolated, with no access to cars, and just a small community (50 houses) living there. For me, Is the most beautiful spot in the south of the island. During summer don´t miss the peculiar library run by a local, is simply charming. In the beach you can find a couple of bars... More

Matadeiro beach is a cool place to go surfing or go swimming in the ocean. The beach is very flat and very, very clean. Perfect conditions for a great day on the seaside!

Gorgeous, and if I remember correctly, neighbouring Armacão is equally beautiful. Could spend a whole day here.

This beach is a great place for surfers and for relaxing, especially for people seeking a quieter place to spend time since this beach is not usually crowded (except for surfers). If you wanna surf there just be careful with the locals. If the left corner is too crowded try to find a more spacious site on the right corner... More

Located in the south of Santa Catarina near a small village. We were outside high season and it rained. The place was full of surfers, who were running past us on the trail to the beach

Nice beach in south of Florianópolis. There are few restaurants there, but they're good and not so expensive. No car acess. you must walk to get there, and there is 2 options: a shallow (and polluted) river or a bridge. For both acess, you get a small trail after. The southern part of Matadeiro usually have less waves, what is... More
