This might be the emptiest beach on the island since it is reachable only by hiking or by small boat either from Armacao or Pantano do Sul. If you spend more than 1-2 days on Floripa and like to hike you should definitely visit this beach! We took the path from Pantano do Sul which took us about an hour.... More

One should do both the trails in order to reach the beautiful amazing paradise on earth. Along with the beach, it also has a stream, water level is upto waist, good for lazing around! The beach is quite empty and you will find maximum 3 vendors selling beers, coke and sandwich at obviously at a very high price. I think... More

Park your car in the road(They charge you 10 reais for the hole day) and cross the mountain (Will take between 45 min/1:30 depending of your pace). The surf conditions usually is much better than the beach aside and you will surf with very few others mates. I just didnt like the people smoking weed all the way.

Some recommendations before my review: wear sneakers, take food and water with you! So I went to Lagoinha on the last day of 2016, it was slippery and very muddy, cannot reinforce enough that it's a moderate hike, but I've found 2~3 persons with +50 years on the trail. It has 2200 meters of extension, even with a couple days... More

Can't recommended it enough, it is a beautiful hike to one of the few beaches that is still virgin in the island of Florianopolis. Hike its up to 2hrs, so if you're not into uphill hikes, you can get a boat in the nearby beaches that are accessible by car. It is safe during the day, but as a heads... More

This place was definitely the most beautiful I have seen in the island. Breathtaking. There are two options to reach the beach: Pantano du Sol and Mataidero trails. The first one it is up hill, it takes about 30 minutes to get to the beach. It is okay to do by yourself, there are plenty of people going there and... More
