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).
