“Continues a great beach although crowded in summer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Despite the crowds in the summer Joaquina continues a great beach! Good waves and if you want to escape the crowds you just have to walk a little towards the right (south). By the way, the vendor's stand right at the entrance of the beach is great - excellent service and excellent value for money! Also a great place to try sandboarding and don't miss going up on the rocks on the left hand side!

If you just wanna drink rum or vodka and stare at Campeche Island (what I did) there are few better places from where to do so.

“Wonderful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Joaquina is a wonderful beach, not too overloaded with touristic infrastructure. Visit the dunes around, this is spectacular!

“great for surfing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Went to this beach and really liked it. the waves are quite strong and this means a lot of fun for surfers and/or enthusiasts.

Also, you can "climb" on the rocks for pretty awesome views of the beach and everything around you.

The beach has a structure good enough for you to spent from a couple of hours to a whole day at it.

“Great beach in Floripa!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

During my 5-day stay in Florianapolis, I went 2 or 3 times at Praia de Joaquina because it was nearby my accommodation and there is everything you need there: Great and large beach, bars/restaurants, shops. There are waves if you want to surf but they are pretty heavy. I heard the surf shop/school is really nice by the beach.
The only thing that was missing is good local restaurant or bar that could where people could hang out. The ones I've looked at weren't so charming (they looked like any other place...)
