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

I took the bus from Florianopolis and it was very cheap, but crowded and no aircon. You change buses at bus station and then quite bumpy ride to praia Mole .

Really beautiful beach and found it to actually be quite clean. Parking is available along the road for around R$10. A mix of locals and visitors and a number of cabanas/bars along the length of it. The gay bar is the furthest north playing pop music (Bar Deca). There is a great rock formation at the very north of the... More

Really lovely rock formations on the hills and North of the beach. Sand was soft and water clean and not too cold. Beach vendors for all sorts of stuff- chairs, snacks, clothes etc. actually I saw one selling clothes that had a sign up showing all the credit cards he took- even Amex & Diners which I thought was hilarious!...
