Psyche up Your Summer: Top 5 Beaches to Visit in Florianopolis

So, it’s well and truly summer time.

The ever-rising mercury tells us so. The intense craving for icy cold beer that just won’t go away agrees. As do the omnipresent teeny-tiny-short-shorts coupled with evening news reports on how to avoid spontaneous combustion from heat exhaustion.

And, as usual, once summer’s reared its red-hot little head, there’s a country which can’t help but pop into our collective minds…


And it’s myriad of beaches.

We all know it: alongside meat and carb-laden food, policemen with questionable morals, football stars and lilting Portuguese, lies a coast absolutely chock full of praias; each of which only gets more and more beautiful than the last. For travellers and beach lovers, Florianopolis – an island in the country’s south – is a mesmerising starting point for Brazilian beach sampling.

From popular, cocktail-laden Mole to peaceful Forte, Florianopolis’s beaches are joys to the eyes and soul. And guys, we’re talking water even your beach-hating friend will have to be dragged out of. (Take it from me: I am that friend.)

Here are some moments from a handful of Florianopolis’s many worthy, delicious beaches.
