    Mocambique is the longest beach of Florianopolis and one of the best barrels machine in Brazil. This 14 km beach is all preserved with no buildings or commodities, a quiet , uncrowded place with powerful, tubular waves, both lefts and rights. It’s never crowded, just drive a little more towards north and you will find a peak just for you and your friends. Enjoy it!!

    There is no infrastructure on the beach, so bring food and water. Access by car trough Rio Vermelho road.
