I'm an American who lives in Barra six months a year and was attracted to the place by the 15km crescent shaped beach where within a ten minute walk you can be by yourself with the surf and seabirds. The canal portion of Lagoa is the commercial area but does have too much to offer except seafood restaurants that offer... More

Visited on an overcast & eventually raining day. The bus stops right near the lagoon where people were swimming. We walked out to the point where people were fishing (successfully) It was very crowded near the shops but as you walked further around the bay it got less so. Hiring umbrellas & chairs were slightly cheaper here ( R26) On... More

I loved this place. I was there for a Saturday night. At the kiosk there was a group playing music which was followed by a 20-person drumming band. The music was wonderful. There are plenty of places to eat (Meu Cantinha was my favorite... very good seafood pasta.

I spent a couple of months living and working in Barra da Lagoa. It's a great little fishing village, with some really wonderful and welcoming people. With regards to the beach itself, there aren't quite as many restaurants/bars compared to some other beaches around Floripa. Although a lot of vendors appear in nice weather, and there's a pretty amazing ice... More

It is like a little town with 2 nice beaches. There are shops , markets and restaurants within walking distance. Beaches are nice but get very busy on high season and wih lots of families and kids. For seeing other beaches you need to move around the island.

Lively little village close to the turtle project - the perfect place to drink a beer on the beach and wait for the sun to set. The sea is a little wilder here and the beach not quite as perfect, but it is all the better for it.

Barra da Lagoa is a place where you can find good food, nice people too, some attractions at night, but it's not a place for swimming; better to take a look at a work of ''rendeiras'', a portuguese tradition...

We went here for the weekend to escape from work. We found it nice and a good place to escape for the weekend. The hostels were full when we were making the booking because of the SUP competition held this weekend. So far, i can say that this is a good beach to relax, surf (beginners), dine and drink.

This is a nice town, where you not only have a nice beach, a nice small lagune with nice views, but also nice authentic shops to buy souvenirs or hammocks.

Brilliant spot. Great to do SUP on the river and lake, and then go up and hike over the top of the hill.. Fantastic views, great location, great way to get a really good experience of the natural beauty of the island.
