Praia dos Naufragados
Another beach totally away from any crowd or tourists. Get the road to Ribeirão da Ilha ( turn right close to Morro das Pedras, ask locals ) and follow it to its end. From ther get the dirt road as faar as possible toward Ponta dos Naufragados, leave your car there ( better do not leave any valuables inside ) and get the trail, its a 30-40 min. Walk. It worths the walk. Beatiful place, hollow waves at the right side , holds size and produces excellent barrels. At the left side there are good lefts breaking . Works best with S swell and W, NE wind. Never S wind.

Are there direct flight to Florianopolis from Buenos Aires?
Re: air travel
Given the geography and the size of cities. I would think flights would go through a more major city airport (Sao Paulo, Porto Alegre, Curitiba ?). check the sites for GOL (www.voegol.com.br) and TAM (www.tam.com.br). Don't know if Ocean Air flies that route or what non-Brazilian carriers do.
Re: air travel
Gol (www.voegol.com.br) and TAM (www.tam.com.br) both have flights from Buenos Aires to Florianapolis.

Travel Tips for Florianópolis
Uh-hu!!! Time to BEACH!
Florianópolis is the capital of Santa Catarina, a littoral state. There, it has more than 100 beaches, divided in the categories north, south and east. I have to say Floripa (as we used to call) is divided too between the continent and the island...
Praia da Guarda
Go south in the BR 101 road and in 30-40 minutes you’ll be on this which is considered one of the ten best surf spots in Brazil. Take right on the Guarda do Embaú / Praia da Pinheira sign .There’s an awesome left that breaks on the rivermouth close to the rocks. To reach this peak you have to hike a small trail and paddle through the river. It worths the effort. The best surfing is on with offshore winds ( W ) or light NE and at low tide and on a E , SE swell.The wave is long and perfect peeling like a perfect left point. There’s also good lefts and rights in the middle of the beach that streches to Garopaba’s limits.
Florianopolis is a cool island south from Sao Paulo. I think the bus takes 10-12 hours from Sao Paulo.
Anyway there are some great beaches and good times to be had on this island. Surfing, swimming, windsurfing, kite boarding, lying in the sun....you really have to get out from Centro to get the island feeling.
