“Excellent Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Santinho is a very beautiful beach, but only if you walk a little away from the crowds close to the Main entrance. We enjoyed a lot!!
Tip: buy a isopor cooler at the supermarket, fill with ice and Drinks and walk about 15 min towards the dunes, You will enjoy a calm and beautiful beach. If you like the " muvuca ", stay at the main entrance and eat good seafood at the Bar on the left side, just be Patient with the waiters. ;-)

“Far but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Very far if you're not staying in North Florianópolis, but it is worth the 30-min-drive to get there. There is a famous resort called Costão do Santinho, where you can find wonderful restaurants and attractions. The beach is awesome, and the view is also great.

“The cleanest beach in Brazil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

No doubt one of the most attractive beaches in the very north of the island and most probably the cleanest in Brazil. This is at least what the natives say themselves by putting up respective, informative signposts with this very message. I lived in Santinho one year and walked every morning from one end of the beach to the other, about 2 x 2 km. Due to its geographic situation it is not overcrowded during the season (Dec - March). Ideal to swim and surf anytime and very clean water. Other than in Ingleses there are no used waters pumped into the ocean.

“Great beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

This beach is frequented mainly by Costão do Santinho Resort guests. But you have free access to it and is worth walking through the wide strip of sand and to enjoy clean and calm waters.
Make sure to climb the sand dunes for an unforgettable view in the sunset.
--------------------
Essa praia é frequentada principalmente pelos hóspedes do Costão do Santinho Resort. Porém você tem livre acesso a ela e vale a pena caminhar por sua larga faixa de areia e aproveitar as águas limpas e calmas.
Não deixe de subir nas dunas de areia para uma vista inesquecível no final da tarde.
