You better take a boat to get There (R$ 20) because the track is realy tough. The beach looks like a paradise and there is a lagoon with hot water right beside. Best beach of the island and is empty.

After some difficulty to find the entrance to trail that takes you trough over an forest trail to the beach. The trail it self is very nice, but you really need firm shoes, no flip flops. The trail gives very beautiful views. And suddenly you are on the beach. The beach and view was worth the climb.

I went to this beautiful beach 2 days ago and I'm still dreaming of the moment I was there. You need to take two buses to get there. One to rio tavares and the next to pantano de sol which also stops at armacao. If you get off ay armacao then you need to walk on the coast and pass... More

The fact of having to trail in order to get there makes the beach desert ... It really feels so good to be there, probably the most beautiful beach I've been to so far !

This is for those up for a hike, and is a must for all who are. Firstly take some water and food, it is a 90min walk each way through subtropic vegetation up and down a hillside. when you get there you can just relax with your mates on the beautiful almost deserted beach, have a swim, or go for...

There is no way to arrive by car. You need to walk 1:30 hours or take the a boat in Pântano do Sul beach. More recently there are some news about lack of security there. Anyway, is the most beautiful beach in the Florianópolis island! Almost desert, there is no place to buy food or water. Excellent place to surf.... More

It really depends on the kind of camper you are. If you are typical Brazilian who is "camping" but wants a warm shower and night and a kitchen to cook, this is NOT it. This is a great beach that you can only access through hiking or boat. So we hiked and came back by boat. There is nothing there,... More

Passei o carnaval de 2013 acampado na praia. Eu cheguei pela trilha pelo matadeiro que fica do lado esquerdo tomando como referência a Ilha. Fiquei acampado da sexta até a terça feira !! Mesmo sendo carnaval, não ouvi nenhum tipo de música. Só calmaria. No meio da mata, existem várias clareiras perfeitas montar acampamento. No lado direito da praia existe... More
