Playa de los Ingleses, the most famous beach in Florianópolis

On several occasions at VuelaViajes we have talked about how spectacular many of the beaches in Brazil are , undoubtedly some of the best in the world thanks not only to their characteristics but also to the landscape that surrounds them. One of the areas that has the best beaches in this country is Florianópolis , which is on the beautiful island of Santa Catarina, in the southeast of the country.

Playa de los Ingleses is in the famous Ingleses neighborhood, in the north of the island, and is one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire region. A very quiet beach that, thanks to its characteristics, looks like a seaside resort more than a beach, with a great warmth in its waters and a totally relaxing atmosphere, which makes it an ideal destination for those looking for a beach where they can rest during their vacations. .

There is hardly any waves on this beach, and when there is, it is very light, so bathing there is totally safe and quiet. In fact, it is one of the few beaches in Florianópolis where you cannot surf or sandboard (the main sport in the area). If what you are looking for is a beach where you can practice this type of water sports, it is best that you choose another one since you will not be able to do it here.

The English beach receives that name since an English ship was wrecked on these coasts in the 18th century and its crew members decided to stay and live there. It has spectacular dunes that are one of its great attractions, in fact, it is common for everyone who visits to walk the 4 kilometers of dunes that separate this beach from Santinho beach, where you can practice water sports.
