What a nice beach! Maybe not the best to swim at, better for surfing, but the sand is gorgeous, the water blue and everyone looks like they just fell off the runway. Thankfully all the beach bars are set back so there's lots of uninterrupted views! A beauty.

If you like surfing, waves and girls this is the place to be. Lagoa neighborhood is busy enough all year long, other beaches get quiet after summer

Beautiful beach in Florianopolis, excellent for surfers, but also for any nature lover. My wife and I visited Florianapolis in early October (low season). It was around 22 Celsius, which is cold for most Brazilians, so the beaches were beatufilly empty and quiet. The beach has a surf bar/lounge with nice natural juices and caipirinhas.

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.
