Definitely a great place to go if you're a surfer. THis beach was filled with surfers and people just out to have a good time.

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.

Lovely sand; the ocean was troubled on the day we went so it was hard to get a footing. Lots of surfers. Techno music was fun but you can sit away from it as well. Galeto Beach is a trek away; supposed to be a nudist beach but Brazilians are too conservative to disrobe; we chose to stay on Mole... More

Many options on this beach and it´s easy to get to. Plenty of places to park. There´s a great surf/yoga school and juice bar on the southern end that a lot of beach dwellers don´t seem to know about. They take walk-ins and have beginner courses at 11am and 3pm daily. Friendly people. Will return to this place again.
