“Keep your shorts on?”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful beaches on an island of beautiful beaches....It is where the boys are near and is the one that tolerates wearing no clothes...Consequently it is not crowded with families with kids and leaves you with a feeling that it is you own private place.

“Stunningly beautiful - and not just the landscape.”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

This is one of the best beaches of the world. Warm bay waters, broad beaches, well-stocked kiosks, clothing optionality, fresh water showers, extensive trails and rock areas to explore, all make for a wonderful day of your choosing.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

If you are not naturist, it's better if you visit at Holidays, when the tourists (like me) scare the locals and can enjoy the beach with bikinis, swimming trunks, shorts, and others clothes parts :)

“very Natural in all aspects!”
Reviewed March 14, 2011

If you go to Florianopolis, you must go there. The beach is very nice, white and soft sand. The nudism os optional.
