Praia da Galheta

The arched white sands of Praia da Galheta can be found roughly 20 kilometres from the centre of Florianopolis on Santa Catarina island. Hidden from the road by a ridge of steep hills covered in foliage and wild orchids, its fine sands are accessed via a short trail that leads from the northern end of Praia Mole.

One of the areas more natural beaches, without restaurants or other facilities, Praia da Galheta is approximately one kilometre in length. Its gentle shoreline waves are popular with naturists, although nudism is not a prerequisite of enjoying this area of Santa Catarina coastline.
