Very nice, and calm. Three typical olds style brazilian, seafood restaurants on the sand. Food is very good as well as the caipirinhas drinks.

Lovely beach, great view and surrounded by magical ¨morros¨ but extremely difficult to access by car or by foot because of the inclination - slopes to get there, the cars that were not 4 wd would skid and squeal when trying to leave the beach because of the inclination of the street, this mixed with the sand made a pretty...

Nice beach with few waves - good to take your children. There is plenty of restarants in there, so as a sugestion you can visit the fort during the morning and then drive to the beach (just 1-2km away), have lunch on the beach and enjoyu the afternoon in this beatiful place.

This is one of the least visited beaches on the island of Santa Catarina, Brazil. For this reason, it is a great place to go. All the other beaches (all 41 of them) are also great, especially those in the East and South, but this one is special. There are a couple of bars where you can buy fish and... More
