One of the best trips in my life was camping at Naufragados Beach... The most southern beach in Floripa is wonderful. From the mount at the left to the lighthouse on the right side, passing through the small stream and the simple houses, dogs, birds and horses in the village, the scenario is a paradise. It was really a great... More

Worth the visit and 40min up and down track! A complete opposite from the northern beaches where one can feel like a canned sardine next to so many other beachgoers :) Very calm and relaxing. There are also 2 restaurants(simple ones but great) where one can eat and drink so no need to bring too many things along.

remote beach at the very south of Floripa. Best way to get there is a boat from Caieira, where also you can get some tasty oysters for just a few reales (12 for 6R). Park and walk downhill for a few minutes and board the boat for a 20min ride. or If you want, you can walk 3Km to get... More

A long walk that includes passing by a small lighthouse (nice!) and arriving to this great beach! you can really imagine why it is called naufragados (shipwrecked)!

Worth going. The beach at very south of the island. Very peaceful and very few people. Very basic restaurant on the spot bring your picnic and drinks. Drive to Caeira da barra do Sul and leave the car there. Or go by bus 561 from TITRIO bus terminal (busses all day every 15-20 minutes) Have good shoes the trail can... More

This beach is beautiful, unspoiled, quiet, and not busy. It took about an hour or hour and 15 to hike to it, there is no way to drive by car. You can rent a boat also but we opted to do the hike. When we got there, we set up a picnic spot, and did some exploring. There is a... More

I'll echo what other reviews have said; first, drive or take public transportation to the south end of the island. The beach is only accessible by a relatively flat and simple trail (2.5 km, about 45 minutes at a leisurely pace) or by boat. We hiked in and saw a wide variety of beautiful butterflies on the trail, great photo... More
