Nice beach with few waves - good to take your children. There is plenty of restarants in there, so as a sugestion you can visit the fort during the morning and then drive to the beach (just 1-2km away), have lunch on the beach and enjoyu the afternoon in this beatiful place.

Not too easy to find but worth the effort. You drive past Jurere International (which although it's a good beach and has lots of glamorous looking houses for it's rich weekenders lacks a bit of soul) and up a steep hill past the lovely old fort that's worth a stop in itself. Then down the other side of the hill... More

This is one of the least visited beaches on the island of Santa Catarina, Brazil. For this reason, it is a great place to go. All the other beaches (all 41 of them) are also great, especially those in the East and South, but this one is special. There are a couple of bars where you can buy fish and... More
