Praia Mole is a very beautiful beach; clean water, no pollution but the sea is a bit rough and the sea water is cold. I loved this place. The beach is short, on its left side there a small is trail (around 200 meters) where you can access Galheta beach - another wonderful beach (Galheta is an all tan beach).

Maybe the most beautiful beach in Florianopolis? Though it is a very close call. Mole can get busy, but it's large enough to accommodate a spot somewhere, even when it's tourist season. There are a few good cafes, bar and restaurants, and it's easy to spend the whole day.

Go there and experience it, preferably during the week to avoid crowds. We went there at the end of a weekday and it was bliss. Incredibly beautiful and super relaxing! I am not a surfer but if you are into surfing it's DEF a must.

A gorgeous expanse of sand and a spectacular coastline. Rough waters to swim in, great to watch those surfing in. We walked from Lagoa da Conceição. The walk is a long one and a steep one. There are buses that go directly past the beach.

Pria Mole is a wonderful beach yet the day I went was overcast with rain. Very few people ventured to the beach. There were a few surfers but not the crowd expected. I believe it might be worth a return trip

Beautiful sandy beach with a good restaurant and chairs/umbrellas. Takes a while to get there during the busy December traffic but it's worth it.

Good place to spend hours watching surfers and beautiful waves. Not a lot of options for food within walking distance.

Long white beach, a few places to eat and drink as you watch the surfers ride the waves. We were there in the off season so it was too cool for nude sun bathing and only a few surfers in the water mid-morning. It was an easy drive and a long the road we parked and a man was there... More
