Although more busier then other beaches, another beach that showcases Brazil's beauty. Very nice and even better when you have an acai bowl in hand!

This is one of the most popular beaches and seems perfect for surfers. The red flag was out during all our visits but swimming was possible and life guards on duty. Plenty of parking (10/day/car) and some nice restaurants and bars

Mole Beach is the more plural and diversified beach of Florianopolis. Young people, family, surfers and gays, live together in Mole beach. Their waves are strong but the wiew and the sunset, they are the best.

It's a long beach with very nice and soft sand. It's not good for swimming but playing with waives was really funny. You can rent a bed and umbrella for 20 reals but most of the people brought their own ones and drinks and food....More

As the subject describes. Its beautiful, has loads of big rocks on either side to relax and climb. Has some big rather strong waves. One of my favourites in floripa.
