This beach is mostly attended by surfers, because it's always too windy and the water is colder than the north beaches. I would recon more to young and surfers than to families with children.

This beach is great, particularly in winter as then there's a lot less people about. One can stroll comfortably on the sand, touch the water and enjoy the view with a beautiful island on the horizon.

Campeche is a great beach for those who like nature, without all the tourist hassle, no beachclubs, no infrastructure, just you and nature. If possible do the trip to the Campeche Island, is a must. You will find a place to relax, read a book, do some sports (great place for surfing and kitesurfing) or just to stroll watching the... More

It is a really nice beach that is frequented by young and beautiful people. There is a good restaurant in front of the beach (almost at the beach LOL) that you can have some snacks and drinks. They offer some activities like windsurf, etc and you can rent a surfboard.

Loved the sea, the cold water, lots of surfers, kitesurfers! One of the most beautiful beaches in Floripa I'll say!

While the beaches Campeche offers are as adorable as any other within Floripa, the one thing to ve mindful about is that the city is big and it doesn't count with a main center. Ideal for counting with a motorcycle or car ti get around.

The sea water is very beautiful, light green, But that´s all. The sand strip has some meters only and gets completely crowded. It´s surrounded by small comercial buildings and rent buildings, so it´s not a charming or romantic one. In high seasons street is full of cars, including stressed drivers. On the other hand, it´s a place with all kinds... More

Very nice beach, easy to reach. I was there in May, so it was very quit on the beach. I think when it is summer in Brazil, if will be very busy. Also a good place to go kite surfing, you can rent the gear in the shops walking to the beach.

To be honest, I never made it to this beach. I had to content myself with looking at it from the confines of Praia Riozinho. But, the sheltered side of the island, which directly faced the coast of Santa Catarina Island, was pretty fantastic looking. I imagine that the calm waters are crystal clear as well.

A very clean beach, biggish waves, well attended by lifeguards and places to rent chairs and umbrellas. There are a number of places to eat as well. The view is gorgeous. Another great Floripa beach.
