One should do both the trails in order to reach the beautiful amazing paradise on earth. Along with the beach, it also has a stream, water level is upto waist, good for lazing around! The beach is quite empty and you will find maximum 3 vendors selling beers, coke and sandwich at obviously at a very high price. I think... More

Park your car in the road(They charge you 10 reais for the hole day) and cross the mountain (Will take between 45 min/1:30 depending of your pace). The surf conditions usually is much better than the beach aside and you will surf with very few others mates. I just didnt like the people smoking weed all the way.

Beatiful trail. I did the way from pantano do sul, around 1 hour to go e 1 hour to back. I took advantage and did the trail Morro das Pedras just beside Lagoinha do Leste beach, just beautiful by the way, difficullt trail, so inclined, but the view and the photos worth ir!

Some recommendations before my review: wear sneakers, take food and water with you! So I went to Lagoinha on the last day of 2016, it was slippery and very muddy, cannot reinforce enough that it's a moderate hike, but I've found 2~3 persons with +50 years on the trail. It has 2200 meters of extension, even with a couple days... More

Can't recommended it enough, it is a beautiful hike to one of the few beaches that is still virgin in the island of Florianopolis. Hike its up to 2hrs, so if you're not into uphill hikes, you can get a boat in the nearby beaches that are accessible by car. It is safe during the day, but as a heads... More

This place was definitely the most beautiful I have seen in the island. Breathtaking. There are two options to reach the beach: Pantano du Sol and Mataidero trails. The first one it is up hill, it takes about 30 minutes to get to the beach. It is okay to do by yourself, there are plenty of people going there and... More

A hard one hour hike over the mountain to this isolated beach. A few teenagers camping in the woods but harmless. Take anything you need with you and climb with hiking shoes not Sandler. You will really enjoy. The beach has large waves and strong undertow so strong swimmers only.
