This is one place you would want to go if you're into adventure sports like surfing. The waves are high but near the beach is calm. Also nice place to walk along the coastline enjoying the sand underneath your feet.

I spent my vacation in Florianopolis last January and I was lucky of the very nice weather I had -almost no rain and all were sunny days between January 16th until the 24th. Because of that, I visited several beaches like this one. For Barra da Lagoa I can tell you that have very calm waters, very nice sea views... More

Lovely sandy beach with a few bars alongside. Plenty of places to rent deckchairs and sun umbrellas for a decent price. Watch out for the big waves however, they can suddenly rush in and wash your stuff out to sea!

Although I haven't tried it, the beach seems great to learn how to surf, saw a lots of people taking classes and the waves are not huge. Good for starters. Beautiful sunset spot at the little green lighthouse at the end of the canal

It´s a nice beautiful beach, clean, no pollution, the sea is not rough but sea water is cold. Walking to the left side of the beach it becomes practically deserted (Moçambique beach). The place is quiet, not dangerous but there can be traffic jam on weekends.
