My family and I were staying at Rio Tavares beach and decided to walk to Joaquina beach from there. It is a 5,5km walk from there. Joaquina is very touristy and crowded specially in the high season.

We were very disappointed with this beach. There are many other beaches that are much nicer. I would not recommend this beach.

Such a nice beach to go for the day. Definitely get a umbrella or take one with you as they have no shade anywhere. It's close to markets and a restaurant. Gets very busy but you can walk along the beach for a quite spot

I was fortunate to accidentally happen upon a pro surfing competition at Joaquina Beach. The dunes, scenery, surf, crowd and party were all amazing! A truly great day!

Joaquina beach is one of the most important, probably the principal I think near the lagoa and the second center!

One of the most native beaches in Floripa, where you can find great waves for surf. The water is pretty cold.You can find good restaurants, and few residences. A good option is the practice of sandboard, very interesting, you can rent the bords in the road.
