Joaquina lands itself on our list despite being one of the city's most tourist-laden beaches during the summer. This is because of the number of opportunities to enjoy life on a board, whether it's in the surf or the sand. With sparkling water and consistent, big breaks that will test experienced surfers, you'd be happy with that alone. What makes Joaquina unique, though, are the sand dunes that lie beyond the beach, best experienced with sandboards that you can pick up on the cheap. Joaquina also has an excellent infrastructure, with food, bathrooms, sports equipment, and other necessary amenities readily available. Out of any beach in Florianopolis, Joaquina shines due to its variety and adventurousness.
