My family and I have been to Canasvieiras many times, in fact it's our favourite destination and we go there every summer.

It's not easy to describe this beautiful beach, but I'll do my best to let you make and idea. I think the best is to start with the location, as it's not such famous place.

So, we locate ourselves in Brazil. Santa Catarina is considered one of the richest states in the country, since it has almost every kind of places to visit, from mountains, valleys to wonderful beaches and the incredible island FLORIANOPOLIS.

This island, also called Floripa (in a shot way) is full of beaches all around its coast, so you can choose from a very variety of styles (surfer's beaches, quieter beaches, night-life beaches).

Canasvieiras is in the North of the island, and its known as the Argentinian´s favourite place in the area.
The beach itself is very clean, the water is almost transparent, warm and quiet.

What we like is that Canasvieiras has two very different residential areas: the central (where young people stay) and a peaceful area (where families and people who want to really rest go) You have a lot of residences to rent a flat, and almost all of them are near the beach; and if you have the chance you can stay in a residence set in the beach, it-s the best when you wake up and are 1 minute from the sand.

The night-life is very good: many restaurants to go, few attractions and lots of shops and street stands. And what is great, is that you can go to any seaside resort for a change.

I hope this gave you an idea of Canasvieiras, if you want to know something special, please post here or contact me.

Rod.

Nice beach, calm water - very good to go with your children. There is a lot of people from outside Brazil here, and even in some stores you may need to speak "Spanish".

Canasvieiras is a bit of a cheap place for the crowd, so to speak. There is a large number of cheap shops, restaurants and hotels favoured by Argentinians and Uruguyans. The ocean water depending on the current is often not so clean. And again, there are a lot of used water drainages favoring infections and deseases. I would stay away, if I were you.

Canas Vieras is not the best place to go or stay...
The beach sand is dirty, certain people that goes there, throw the trash on the sand! The beach has nothing in special! Canas is cheap to stay, if you are a cheap person stay there.

Pretty nice to go with children, as the sea there doesn't have any waves. The infrastructure is great, restaurants, supermarkets, bars, etc.

This beach is nice and fun. Clean water, can be busy. Many beach vendors and some are pushy, try hard to make you purchase their products.

This neighborhood of Florianopolis has a high amount of Argentinians. During the summer season, many of them love coming to Canasvieiras and hang out at the beach and shop at the stores. It is an inexpensive area to stay in Florianopolis.

Nice island to go to and lots to visit. Many forts and other interesting buildings to see on the island. I rented a car and went everyday to a different part of the island.
