A lovely neighborhood between a long beach and a water canal. The fishermen still give a fish party once a year when there is a lot of the local fish Tainhia. Backpackers love the place, especially in the pastoral part over the bridge.

The weather wasn't good when we were here but we were still impressed by Praia Barra da Lagoa. The beach is enormous stretching 14kms towards Praia da Mocambique and although the beach was quite busy around the restaurants, I imagine you could always walk up the beach to get away from the crowds. Good variety of waves with lots of people surfing.

Plenty of places to stay and to eat.

If you are in Florianopolis I would try to venture to other beaches and give this one a miss. the only good thing is the waves and surfing. It just doesn;t look very nice, and is extremely crowded. Try Praia Mole 5 mins away which is prettier and less crowded

Barra Da Lagoa is set on a very nice beach and although in two weeks we did not get too much sun we did get bad wind burn which made us very sore. We stayed the two weeks before Christmas which is not high season and it was too quiet for us. The restaurants were not very good and seemed to have opening times to suit themselves. You can catch the bus easily into the next town where you need to go to find an ATM but our experience would suggest that you do not rely on these for cash , take some cash to change if you are from outside Brazil. Very pretty resort but not for us.

The water is full of dog faeces and trash people leave on the beach and throw in the water.
It is bad to go there as an adult let alone with children
