Florianópolis is an interesting city. But, get away from its hussle and bussle of cosmopolitan life. Go to the far north end of this beach. Kind of hard to find the pathway, but well worth the effort. It is deserted. Just you, nature, and heaven!!! Great for surfing long goofy feet left waves - see them on google maps (type "Ilhas das Aranhas" - it will show you the northern shore, but the Aranha Islands are actually the two islands facing the beach). Take water, dark glasses and sun screen...and truly enjoy!!!

the longest beach on the island is also one of the wildest, having been declared a state park and nature reserve along with the neighboring dunes and vegetation that separate it from residential rio vermelho. apart from sunny weekends in the summer, when clueless SUV drivers and motor-bikers take to its pristine sands (and leave their trash behind for good measure), it's a fantastic experience when accessed on foot by one of the various trails across rolling dunes and woods. if you really have to go by car, use main entrance to the reserve and park just before you reach the beach. no infrastructure whatsoever. beware of thieves, leave nothing of value in the car. or, more importantly, any evidence of your presence there.

Wild beach, with strong waves. The coast is undeveloped as it's a protected nature area. If you just want to surf, this is a great spot.

'Wild' beach. No construction there. Desolate. For safety reasons, go during daytime and in the weekend.

As the access over a bumpy forest road seems endless and discouraging, but well worth the trouble. Praia de Mocambique is one of the longest beaches on the ocean front, clean and not overrun by tourists during the high season like most other beaches. Ideal for lonely young couples in love.
