One of the best!

In Florianopolis this was one of the best beaches I went to, I really appreciate the beach and the sea, if you go in the morning there's not even that much people!

We where totaly alone on the beach exeptmfor some surfers. The beach is very stretched and you have to walk for at last two,hours to reach the end of it. Very nice restaurants on the beach with a lot of fresh fish.

We visited on a rainy day but the beach is just so beautiful we went for a wander all the same. There were plenty of people enjoying the surf and the waves appeared to be quite good for novice surfers as well as intermediate. There are a few restaurants and bars along the beach as well as places to hire... More

One of the best beaches. Great surf. Has beach restaurants bars as well but plenty of natural space. Over Xmas, new year it can take a while to get to as traffic can be bad.

"Mole" means soft which referes to the sand. This also means that it's full of movable holes while in the water, which is very dangerous, specially because the waves are really strong. Good only for surfers.

A fun, relaxing beach. It was high season so pretty busy but not overcrowded. Spent the day here, you can rent beach umbrellas quite cheap. There is a great little bar restaurant with amazing acai bowls, for a little break.

Thank Sarahbnyc83
