We had to take two cars. On Sunday the boats didnt operate back to Armacao. Parked one car at Pantano and drove back to Armacao and parked up there. Had to pay 15 and 20 reals respectively. The trail was relatively easy to find after crossing the footbridge from Armacao and walking along Matadeiro beach. The walk started in the... More

A 1,5 hour hike through a forest path, with some difficulties, to get to a paradise beach! The beach is wild and cold but great sightseeing, and just beneath the beach there is a clam, warm water lagoon.

My family and I, my son, his wife and 2 grandsons, hiked this today. It took longer than 2 hrs, one way, and I am in my 60's. It was hot and humid, but once we got to the beach it was as beautiful as promised. We spent 2 hours playing in the waves, then a storm started moving in.... More

Even though the beach is beautiful, the one and a half hour trail makes it not worth the effort. There are no bars, nowhere to buy water. Go to Galheta Beach instead, it is as beautiful as this one but easier to get to.

We started in the north and it took us more than two hours to get to the beach. Very demanding since it has rained the night before. Since the weather was not the best, we were totally alone on this wonderful beach. Awesome! Then we took the easier road home to the south. Try to spot the hidden tent villages... More

If you like to go where most people don't go and if you like hiking hills through the forest you'll love it. Beautiful part of the south of Floripa Island.

A small fisherman calm, secure and quiet community is surrounded by great natural landmarks. You can also take a boat to visit the islands.

Personal favorite spot in Florianopolis. Don't forget to climb the hill once you reach the beach. From there you get the best view on the island! Go when it is clear sky. The trial there (either from Pantano do Sul or Matadeiro beach) might be challenging. You need enough time, water and insect repellent (mosquitoes).
