Beautiful beach in Florianopolis, excellent for surfers, but also for any nature lover. My wife and I visited Florianapolis in early October (low season).

mole has no infrastructure, one or two places you can rent (hotel) but it is amazing and is truly a Florianopolis' essential place to visit. Big waves, white sands and a coffee house and surf school right at the sand. Must go.

Only 5 minute walk from my hostel, this was where I spent most mornings. Very peaceful, private, and clean.

This was the first of nearly all the beaches that we visited in Florianopolis. The name says it - softest sand ever! Bring your sunscreen though, yikes! It is a fairly busy beach and taking the bus home can be like being in a can of sardines depending on the time of day and day of the week.

I was born and raised in the Island of Florianópolis, and I can tell: Praia Mole is a post card that came true. Don't miss this experience!

The best beach in Florianópolis!! Clear water, but the sea is a little bit dangerous and there is a lot of waves, usually.
