The beach was buzzing with many people when we visited on a Sunday afternoon. There were many people in the area near the restaurants, and the crowd thinned significantly as we moved away from the parking and restaurant area. There were many surfers and a significant waves. The water was very beautiful and the rocks also added interest. People of... More

one of the top beaches of florianopolis along.central, atmospheric, and never too crowded, a fave with surfers, and the sporting lot. it also boasts the largest expanse of dunes of the island, great to wonder off and get lost in. for the locals, an enviable address indeed.

The beach is great if you just want to seat and enjoy the sea. If you want a different experience, you can try the sandboard in the sand dunes near the beach. The restaurants are quite expensive. Sugest to bring your food/beers to save some money

Even on a sunny day in the middle of the summer this place was actually not too crowded. And even though it's a popular place for turists you can still buy a caipirinha for 5BRL and enjoy in the sun. Clean beach with some places to eat, clean water and good parking. Very nice!

Nice beach with lots of space for everyone and a wild ocean. Not too crowded but with several restaurants/coffees nearby.

The beach is beautiful and the water is a little cold. There is some restaurants to eat and classic small sellers to drink caipirinha and caldo cana. The beach is very near from SandBoard place (you can go by foot). It is 20 reais and you can take one board only and use this with more people

I spent my vacation in Florianopolis last January and I was lucky of the very nice weather I had -almost no rain and all were sunny days between January 16th until the 24th. Because of that, I visited several beaches like this one. For Joaquina I can tell you that generally have very good waves, especially suited for surfers and... More

Nice beach but impossible to swim. Dangerous water. Locals go to watch the surfers and get a tan. Young people beach. Perfect for good surfers! Cold water and strong waves! Do not go with children.
