From the mailand, drive to Mole Beach, at the eastshore. Park your car at Mole parking lots and take a 15 minute walk to Galheta, heading north from Mole. Very easy to find.

Galheta, in my opinion, is one of the best spots in Florianópolis. 3 different spots constantly work at this beach. On the right side of the beach, with SE/E swells and northeast/west winds, breaks a fast and very powerful right. In the middle of the beach, where it's more crowded, breaks a wave very similar to the waves of Praia Mole. On the north side of the beach, breaks a very fast and long left, with too much barrels, that works best with east sweel and northeast winds.
Galheta is very good to get barrelled. A lot of gays naked on the sand and sometimes having sex with no shame. In the summers there are some nice hot chicks showing the pussies and the boobs too. Yeaaah!
This spot is great because:
1. The wave is really good.
2. Its never crowded.
3. ITS A NUDIST BEACH!
