Great beach if you are a surfer or like to watch surfing. Nice to walk from one side to the other and climb up the rocks. Always a fresh breeze and couple of bars/restaurants tucked away on the beach. Only for surfing tough not for swimming.

Praia mole is a windy brave waves beach where surfers use to go and practice surf. If you are looking for something more peaceful and quiet beaches go to the other side of the Island.

It's a place to practice surf and there are beautiful people all around. Good bars at the beach where you can have lunch and beverage. Good price. Astonishing landscape.

beautiful people, nice music, great walks, good surfing, nice parties, not a quiet place in summer... not recommended for families with small children, the ocean can be a little tricky!

We came when it was overcast so I don't feel we got the true experience, but it seemed like a nice quiet surfer beach. Views were nice and even with the less than optimal weather it was a pleasant experience.

This is a lovely beach to spend the day at. The options of what you can do range from relaxing in the beach chairs to kite boarding. Plenty available. Worth a stop if near by

I really enjoy everything in this beach! Visit Arágua kiosk and taste the juices. Local people in this beach have a health appearance and a good vibe. Good for surf and kitesurf!

Absolutely loved this beach! We stayed towards the mid to South of the beach away from the hustle and bustle of the Middle of the beach. This area was still happening and had a great vibe yet we had plenty of room and had the attention of the beach bar service men the whole time. Beautiful beach with great mid... More

This was one of my favorite beaches in Florianopolis even if I couldn't swim there. The waves are better for surf and the water is very cold, but the landscape is amazing especially if you walk for a couple of minutes to Galheta Beach. The scenery is breathtaking, a lot of cliffs, a small path that goes through tropical vegetation... More
