Make a holiday rental in Praia Brava, Brazil your home away from home

Praia Brava holiday accommodation is set next to a beach in the Brazilian city of Florianopolis, capital of the state of Santa Catarina. It’s a destination famous for its sublime and unspoiled beaches. Many people head here to enjoy the fantastic conditions for surfing, but there are facilities on offer for a whole host of outdoor activities both on land and water.

Things to do in Praia Brava, Brazil

At holiday apartments in Praia Brava you’ll be next to a stunning sandy beach, two kilometres in length and bookended by green hills, which also form the backdrop for the beach. The beach is immaculately clean and shelves gently, creating a large expanse of relatively shallow water, and the waves here provide good conditions for activities such as surfing and bodyboarding. Meanwhile, a few minutes from Praia Brava holiday accommodation is neighbouring Praia dos Ingleses, which offers a very different, but no less alluring beach. At Praia dos Ingleses you’ll find a large bay, with a beach that extends for almost five kilometres. One of the key features is the dune system, with individual dunes tall enough to attract sand boarders. The water here is clear and calmer than at Praia Brava, and this makes it a good location for scuba diving. Indeed there’s a dive centre located here, offering a range of expeditions. If you’d like to stay dry then a number of boat trips and cruises depart from Praia dos Ingleses. A little further down from Ingleses is Praia do Santinho, which is a little less sheltered, and once again ideal for surfers. An interesting landmark here are the cliffs, which feature rock art dating back some 5,000 years.
