Although I haven't tried it, the beach seems great to learn how to surf, saw a lots of people taking classes and the waves are not huge. Good for starters. Beautiful sunset spot at the little green lighthouse at the end of the canal

It´s a nice beautiful beach, clean, no pollution, the sea is not rough but sea water is cold. Walking to the left side of the beach it becomes practically deserted (Moçambique beach). The place is quiet, not dangerous but there can be traffic jam on weekends.

Barra da lagoa is a quieter side of Florianopolis. It's surrounded by hostels and great vistas. Great beach and crowd with easy connectivity by bus. Highly recommend staying here.

This area boasts a very nice beach, great little town with a pharmacy and gift shops. There are many different beach side restaurants which all seem to have a great lunch deal going on - you can eat right on the beach! Another neat feature of this beach is that it is home to the Tamar Project - which is... More

The beach is quite nice but the food is expensive and not great and there are much better places on the island which are more worth your time.
