Joaquina Beach, Florianopolis

4.6
#1 of 390 in Outdoors in State of Santa Catarina
Due to its soaring sand dunes and stellar waves, Joaquina Beach is one of the best and most legendary surfing beaches in the country, and perhaps the world. During summer, which is from December to February in Brazil, this beach is extremely busy with bronzed bodies and cars trapped in traffic jams just to spend a little bit of time on the sandy white beach. The winter in Brazil, around June through August is the best time for surfing on the waves that reach up to 2.5 m (8 ft) high.

  • The beach is great, good for those who surf, do not recommend for those looking for a calm sea or want to take children, the beach is lively, full and beautiful.

  • Beautiful beach with beautiful people. But what I liked the most besides the beach were the dunes that you can "surf" is a tour that is worth doing. I was the last time in November 2013.

  • Great beach experience, but it's not the easiest beach to get to. The sand dunes and the rocks nearby definitely add to the experience.
