This neighborhood of Florianopolis has a high amount of Argentinians. During the summer season, many of them love coming to Canasvieiras and hang out at the beach and shop at the stores. It is an inexpensive area to stay in Florianopolis.

Nice island to go to and lots to visit. Many forts and other interesting buildings to see on the island. I rented a car and went everyday to a different part of the island.

I love this beach. I come by every year since 96. I love walk at the beach at first sunlight. Prices are affordable. Lots of food options. Gift shops everywhere. It's a family beach.

It's a great place to enjoy with your family, there are good restaurants and the price is quite OK. The beach is clean and quite, so it's perfect for childrens. Also there are some points where you can rent chair, board and kaiak. Its a safe at all and close to others beach.

Nice beach, calm water - very good to go with your children. There is a lot of people from outside Brazil here, and even in some stores you may need to speak "Spanish".

Canasvieiras is a bit of a cheap place for the crowd, so to speak. There is a large number of cheap shops, restaurants and hotels favoured by Argentinians and Uruguyans. The ocean water depending on the current is often not so clean. And again, there are a lot of used water drainages favoring infections and deseases. I would stay away,... More

Pretty nice to go with children, as the sea there doesn't have any waves. The infrastructure is great, restaurants, supermarkets, bars, etc.
