Is difficult to find not nice beaches in Santa Caterina, and Praia Brava is, as the most, a really really nice beach!! Recommended

I may a little biased sionce this is the beach in Florianopolis to which I come year after year for the last seven years. However, it is a place not only visit but, specially, to stay for a week, at least. These 1,500 yards of white sand, cove like beach is wonderful for all your senses. The wonderful waves, the transparente waters, the forest on both sides, the elegante condos and the distance from the noisy bustling Florianópolis city center and the other crowded beaches makes of Praia Brava de island. within the island. There are a small supermarket at the south end of the main and only avenue and some food tents on the beach that can serve your during the summer months (December until the end of Febraury). On the other months thigs are stil quieter and you will depend on Lagoinha and Ponta das Canas for acquiring your food.

This used to be an almost deserted beach with just a few vacation houses 15 years ago (it was my favourite beach back then, especially in the winter), now it is so developed I would not have recognized it! Still, a nice beach, with good surf when the swell is right and possibility to rent a surfboard (there are about 4 tents on the beach - the boards are not in best shape but ok), which is rare in Florianopolis. By the way, if there are no waves and you are not the designated driver, the caipirinha (de cachaça) is 10 R$ and it is 700ml ;-) very good value for money! Have fun!
