Santinho Beach

Almost untouched by man, Santinho Beach is mainly sought by tourists who look for nature, the locations paradisaical beauty and tranquility. Surfers are the main visitors and consider Santinho to be the best beach in the North of the Santa Catarina Island. It is in the left hand corner where bathers do not venture -- that surfers practice their sport, sharing the space with fishermen. Forty kilometers away from the centre of Florianpolis, another great attraction of this beach are the primitive inscriptions made by hunters, fishermen and collectors inhabiting the Island five thousand years ago. The name Santinho comes from a human figure engraved on an isolated block of rock.
