Praia Ponta Das Canas, Florianopolis

4.3
Praia Ponta Das Canas has over 2 kilometers (over 1 mile) of soft white sand, with calm water and pleasant temperatures. The bottom of the sea descends gradually, making this a popular beach for families with children. Jet ski or fish here, or hike up a short and easy trail, leading to another local beach. Restaurants along the waterfront serve fresh oyster dishes, which you can enjoy right on the sand. The beach is a melting pot of languages and accents, with tourists from all over Latin America. Blend in with the crowd by testing a few words of the popular "Portunhol" (a mix of Portuguese and Spanish).

  • For those looking for calm sea, little depth and little Agito is the ideal beach. Simple infrastructure but has good restaurants. Excellent for those who have small children and arriving early has free parking.

  • If you like a sea with calm waters, the beach Ponta das Canas is indicated. There is a mangrove that precedes the sea, but it does not hinder access to the sea. Anyone who likes to pick shells will love this place.

  • A wonderful place. Reflects the magnitude of creation. There's no way you can't think of God's perfection when you look at that beautiful beach of crystalline waters.
