“My favorite place in Florianopolis”
Reviewed February 26, 2007

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.
