This is a great chance to the sandbording, you can rent either a board to do ir standing or to do it sitting. The price is only R$10. The place is big and lets you enjoy the sport greatly!

Great beach for surfing and also for walking and running, because there is lots of space and good waves (depending weather - check for optimum surfing conditions). Also has high Dunes nearby, where you can do sand boarding, lots of fun fort kids.

If you want to know sandboard and have some fun you can enjoy these dunes. Be aware the wind is a bit strong so you will have sand all over you

This is one of my favourite places in Florianópolis. The dunes are very unique and it's really fun to go down with a board.

It is not a really big area (compared to other sand dunes I've visited. But it is great if you plan to try the sandbaord! It is really easy to rent one around there. The problem will be to go up and down the dunes!...More

If you are fan of sand board and enjoy going up and down the dunes, you will love it! The view of the sea and the lake from the top of the dunes is fantastic too.

This place is very cool and hard to miss - you can see it as you arrive into Lagoa on rt404. A definite must see.
