Warm waters, perfect weather. Lots of vendors along the beach selling drinks (juices, caipirinhas), food, bikinis, lacey sarongs for wearing over bikinis. But the beaches quickly became overcrowded even at the northern end of the island at this time of year (Christmas and New Year's)

The water is very clean and calm, so it's the perfect place to take the kids. The beach is very beautiful, there are plenty of things to look at. There are no waves and the beach is not as crowded as Canasvieiras or Cachoeira do Bom Jesus.
It's a place to go either with your family or just you and your partner.

to the north yocan walk on the stones, southwards are the mangroves. Former fishermen´s town is now quite touristic family beach, but i strongly recommend it specially from february to november, when it´s not crowded.

I believe it is one of the best beaches in Floripa. It's at the tip of the island. The waters are shallow, so it is possible to walk 300, 400 meters into the sea. There are no waves. It is ideal for children, as they can play without problems. The problem is the traffic on the way back, my God. The ideal is to arrive early, around 9am and leave early, around 3pm so you don't get caught in traffic. Otherwise, it's better to stay until 8pm to beat the traffic. Everything is at a standstill and there are no other options.

This is a truly wonderful city... Safe and clean... In 7 days of vacation, I visited several beaches and couldn't see any police cars on the streets. Very safe city... Polite people. In summer, it is the best beach destination in Brazil. Hot water, the same as in Natal RN, however, extremely clean. GRADE 10

We stayed in Costa Norte on this beach.
Personally, I like this beach for its tranquility, the color of the water, the rocky hill and the incredible sunsets in the sea.
In addition, you can take advantage of walking from there to Cacoheira and Canasvieras in a highly recommended walk (even for every day if you like to walk between an hour and an hour and a half).
The paradores are good (a little slow in high season).
What you may not like so much is the infrastructure of the area. It is a very fishing village with little offer of anything. That's why it was worth it to be in Costa Norte with breakfast and dinner included.

Beautiful beach, with few waves and a large waist-high stretch of water, ideal for families with children. The beach has two bars with great service, but the portions were small and it was more expensive than other beaches we visited in Florianópolis.

Beautiful and clean beach. Calm sea, perfect for those with children or who don't like rough seas. Restaurants and bakery nearby. There is also a kiosk. Good beach even for those who practice some type of sport like running or walking.
