That destiny was great, I was there in 2009. I will take you almost 1.5 hs of walking through the jungle to get to the beach, but once you are there. It's simply amazing!

This was a really worth trail, it's not too long and you arrive in an almost desert beach!! Afterwards, you can go to Arante's Bar in Pantano do Sul beach and try "cachaça" and the amazing crawfish.

It's a wonderful beach in Pantano do Sul ( Florianopolis ) where you can get just by foot. It has no houses or bars in the beach and you must take your food and water with you. You should be in shape because it's a long walking on hill ( almost 1 hour each way ) but when you get... More

This was one of my favorite things to do Floripa. Take 2 buses to the hiking trail, a good 2-hour hike to the beach and about an hour back. Beautiful views, peaceful, quiet, and private.

Hard to get there but worth it for its beauty, small size, good restaurants and people. Touring the island? This is a must. Hard to get to in a way so get a map or setup directions properly. It's likely 30 minutes from downtown with no traffic. Also, very safe there too for family and leaving your car there. DON'T... More

Crazy if u miss it! Start the journey early in the morning because it takes a while to get there. The route from matadero takes 30 mins longer, but it is easier than going from pantano do sul.

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 !
